Overview

Oregon's North Umpqua River contains miles of the best steelhead and trout water in North America; its pool and riffles draw anglers the world over. Michael Baughman has fished these waters most of his life, and A River Seen Right is his testament to what he has learned there.The North Umpqua flows past thousands of years of history, with three-thousand-year-old bird points still able to be found at the water's edge. In the twentieth century, renowned sportsmen such as Zane Grey have come to the river, tramping up the steps of the famed Steamboat Inn, whose history is detailed here. There are some candid words on the danger of increased fishing pressure on the viability of the fishery. The book speaks of fly patterns, productive pools, and the best seasons to fish (mostly the uncrowded ones), but its bent is not practical. Rather, Baughman brings us along on an extended tour of the river to talk about fishing, the river's rich history, and some pleasant memories - like an afternoon's walk at streamside with an old friend.The book is graced with photographs by Dan Callaghan, who is also lucky enough to call the North Umpqua his home water.Any fly fisherman, from any place, will want this special book. (71/4 X 81/4, 156 pages, color photos, b&w photos, map)

Combining methods of modern literary scholarship with the philosophical initiatives of the Kyoto School, argues that Zen thought and art provide both a generative and formative context for understanding the spirituality of the English poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850). Begins with an introduction to Zen philosophy and progresses to technical aspects, revealing intercultural dimensions to Wordsworth's images of the soul. Demonstrates both the influence of global culture in 19th-century England and the flexibility of Zen thought. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
