Its funny, if you are from the area that Mr Geirach resides (Lyons) you can kind of piece together the areas he is talking about...i have fished many of them myself. i think thats one of the big things i enjoy about his books, i can relate to the areas he is talking about. Ive met him once and on a few occasions have seen him on the river...but i never bother him, i figure he gets enough people bothering him while he fishes. he seems like a down to earth type guy though...i wonder if he ever frequents this site._colorado said:I presume you are referring to fishing literature. Anything by John Gierach is both entertaining and instructional anecdotally. His topics are usually about our waters though he never discloses the names of lakes and includes a smattering of hunting stories - a nice break.
Trout Bum (this is THE classic Gierach book)
The View From Rat Lake
Standing in a River Waving a Stick
These are good titles to get you started.
both of these books r excellent and ive read them several times, eli weisel has a sequel called dawn and i think there may be another one, its nuts, also for school we had to pick a book by a foreign author so i chose the divine comedy by dante aligheri, im just reading the inferno for class, but i got the whole book, tough reading but its good stuffBurn-n-daylight said:what about the greatest book of all time Where the red fern grows. On a serious note theres a book callled Night by Eli Weisel. if you are interested about reading about what really happend during the Holacost (spelling)
