"The story and characters here are strong; Reddick fleshes out both protagonists' worlds with thought and compassion."
--Kirkus Reviews

"This story is deeply rooted in personal experience, environmental science, and current social reality. Its skilled writing rewards a careful reading."
--Joseph Meeker, author of The Comedy of Survival
--Gail Hudson, New York Times bestselling co-author with Jane Goodall of Seeds of Hope, Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants

"Vivid, poignant, and alarming, The Same River forces a young wildlife biologist to confront her conflicting passions as they collide at the crossroads of irrefutable science, the wounds of childhood tragedy, and the heartrending boundaries she must set on love. Reaching back to our native ancestors for the wisdom and strength to do what's right, this urgent tale of for our times compels us to look our priorities in the eye when government and corporate bureaucracies willfully skirt problematic truths."
--Ellen Notbohm, award-winning author of The River by Starlight

"The Same River is a gripping novel with complex, beautifully imagined characters whose intense and vividly portrayed inner lives will engage and inspire readers. Through Jess and Piah's stories, we are invited to recognize our often-overlooked ability to listen carefully to the landscape and its inhabitants, and to thus be moved to act as protectors of the earth."
--Mary Gomes, Ph.D., Co-editor of Ecopsychology: Restoring the Earth, Healing the Mind

"The mystery of the wild is woven through this well-crafted story of two women, connected across time, who share a deep kinship with the river that has taken so much and given so much in return."
--Patricia Hasbach, Ph.D., co-author of The Rediscovery of the Wild
