Read an Excerpt

I had passed the home several times throughout the years and had always admired both its form and location on the Big Wood River in Idaho. I had stood several times in full fly-fishing regalia in the front yard of the home as I tied files on my line in hopes of catching a few elusive brown trout. In time my good friend rustic artist Doug Tedrow asked if I would like to see a wonderful riverside home full of great rustic furniture. How could I refuse? Within the hour we are standing on the front porch of the home I had admired for years.
