The Way of the River: Adventures and Meditations of a Woman Martial Artist. The Lyons Press. 2001. ISBN 978-1-58574-301-8.[3]

The Way of the River is an illuminating, autobiographical exploration of the physical, mental, and spiritual lessons of the martial arts. In these beautifully written essays, BK Loren shares stories from her lifelong passion, illustrating how this centuries-old art has shaped her – and revealing the wisdom it offers for our lives today. To each personal story BK Loren brings thoughts on nature, culture, women’s roles, and class in America. The Way of the River transcends self-defense – as Loren shows, martial arts are ultimately about bringing body and mind into balance, allowing one to deal with life’s obstacles with calmness and clarity.
