Summary

On a Quiet July afternoon in 1936, young Blackie Marshall stood on a deserted bridge over the Salmon River contemplating suicide. Floating down the Salmon to forget his troubles, he had wrecked his canoe in the first rapid. His fiancee had left him, married another man. Life didn't seem worth living anymore. Bus Hatch was fishing along the river when he happened upon Blackie, heard the young man's tale of woe, and took him back to camp for supper. Sitting around the fire, Bus and companions offered Blackie a place on their crew for a descent of the Salmon River. "Come go with us," they said, "and we'll kill you for nothing."
