Deliverance Author:James Dickey Four solid citizens of suburbia go canoeing down a wild North Georgia river. Two are waylaid, forced to sodomy at shotgun point by two degraded but believable mountaineers. Their companions kill one with an arrow meant for a deer. Four men caught in a primitive and violent test of manhood.
