Product description

Review

Blood Sport makes its own rules and invents new disturbances. . . . It s fable, legend, joke, folklore, myth, all suspended on a springing branch of storytelling as the serious and the outrageous merge into a work of art.

The author has created that great rarity a new myth . . . it produces in your mind the same edge excitement as if entering wild country . . . and it works!

An exciting, heady mixture . . . set in an extraordinary landscape composed of the Neolithic Age as much as modern America, with equal parts of myth, racial memory, fantasy, the distant future, and the gothic fog of nightmare . . . the book takes wild chances and succeeds.

The author has created that great rarity--a new myth . . . it produces in your mind the same edge excitement as if entering wild country . . . and it works!

From the Back Cover

If outdoor literature has its cult novel, Blood Sport is it. In 1974 Robert Jones created a new world in which a mythical river wilderness becomes the setting for a father and son journey like no other. The intensity of its suspense and mindbending adventure still place Blood Sport in a category all its own. ((5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 256 pages)
