From the heralded author of A Place on the Water comes an eloquent testament to fly fishing and family life -- and a passionate romp through the natural world

Jerry Dennis, a writer of extraordinary intelligence and insight, uses fishing as a starting point for explorations into life, natural history, and science. His work has often been compared to that of Hal Borland, Robert Traver, and John Geirach. In The River Home, Dennis examines how a sense of place shapes our lives and values; how the concept of home has changed in the restless decades of the late twentieth century; and how outdoor sports, travel, and nature study can put us in deep contact with the earth -- and with ourselves. The author has cast his lines far, traveling to several continents and to the storied waters of the American West. But he always reels himself in with renewed appreciation for the rivers, lakes, and hills of his beloved nothern Michigan.
