Book:River Friendly, River Wild

River Friendly, River Wild

Jane Kurtz, Neil Brennan

On TV we watch our city where people navigate the river-streets in any way they can….
“Look.” Max points. “it’s Sarah’s house.”
All I see is roof.

In searing personal poems, Jane Kurtz explores what it’s like to struggle through a flood and pull your life together afterward. Inspired by Kurtz’s own flood experience, this tale is realistic and unforgettable. Not just a moving story of one girl’s courage, River Friendly, River Wild is a tribute to everyone who’s ever faced great loss.
