THE RIVER WHY.
Edition: Trade paperback.
New York: Bantam, (1984.). The author's first book, a book which has become a classic of fly fishing along with Maclean's 'The River Runs Through It.' (and also the first novel published by The Sierra Club.) "Leaving behind a madcap, fishing-obsessed family, Gus embarks on an extraordinary voyage of self-discovery along his beloved Oregon rivers. What he unexpectedly finds is man's wanton destruction of nature and a burning desire to commit himself to its preservation. Here is the funny, sensitive, very special story of one man's search for meaning, for love, and for a sane way to live - a tale that gives a contemporary voice to the concerns and hopes of all living things on this beautiful watery planet Earth." 291 pp. ISBN: 0-553-341928.
