When I was young, I lived beside a wild river. The river was always going somewhere, and I never tired of watching it. My mother told me the river began in the mountains to the north and ended in the ocean to the west. But this I had never seen.

Rivers, oceans, and clouds will never seem quite the same again after "Go Home, River." In this turn-of-the-century story, a young Eskimo boy follows his family into the mountains to the river's beginning, sails down the gathering river to its end, and marvels as the river takes itself apart in its delta.
