More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Standing atop the Great Smoky Mountains with a creel full of joy and heartbreak, the author of The Earth Is Enough casts a Thoreau-like eye at love, flyfishing, geology, the character of mountain folk and trout. Middleton wants readers to experience his Smoky Mountain fishing trips as he does: as metaphors for transcendental faith in nature. A naturalist-romantic, he celebrates the wild mountain trout with a congregation of eccentric highlanders and fishing companions who give colorful witness in clipped Faulknerian speech. Middleton's own style, however, is fluid--his prose occasionally as lithe as Annie Dillard's--carrying forward his tribute while his angst about the future floats overhead like a buzzard on a high thermal. (Mar.)
Library Journal
In witty observations, advice, and anecdotes relative to his favorite streams in Colorado and Montana, angler Gierach provides an entertaining follow-up to his likable Sex, Death, and Fly Fishing ( LJ 5/15/90). His loose theme is that fishing is better in remote spots where the aquatic ecosystem has been left alone to reach its full potential. He doesn't tell where these backwoods jewels are, however, but readers who like the outdoors will nonetheless find vicarious enjoyment in his experiences. Illustrations--Gyotaku prints made by the author, which comprise a third of this slim volume--were not seen. Recommended for large public libraries. The Great Smokey Mountains are well known to environmentalists and outdoor enthusiasts as a breathtaking natural habitat for precious flora and fauna. Middleton ( The Earth Is Enough: Growing Up in a World of Trout and Old Men , LJ 7/89), developed an appreciation for fishing and scenic wonders growing up in the Ozarks. He discovered and fell in love with the Smokies almost accidentally a decade ago. This book is his unabashed paean to the region and the wise and colorful people he has met there. His experiences have provided him with remarkable sensual, spiritual, and intellectual nourishment, and his lyrical prose is well suited to conveying his wonder. Highly recommended.-- Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs.
