A Place on the Water: An Angler's Reflections on Home by Jerry Dennis, Glenn Wolff

More than a collection of fishing stories, A PLACE ON THE WATER is a passionate and eloquent exploration of subjects with broad appeal: love of land and water, informed and unsentimental appreciation of nature, and outrage at changes that threaten to obliterate places we can no longer afford to take for granted. Jerry Dennis's sparkling prose and Glenn Wolff's captivating illustrations transport us to a world we recognize from childhood: a place of limitless range and possibility, shimmering with life, where the very next cast will be the one that hooks something enormous and wonderful.
