The situations occur in Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Idaho and Utah and other fishable parts of the world and include details as to parking camping costs, trails, and other interesting notes. Each story is a personal essay description the fishing trip.

Michele Murray is a geologist and writer. She is a professional fly fishing guide and owns Tumbling Trout Fly Shop in Lake George, Colorado. She and her spouse (also a geologist) have been wading and rowing a dory together for 19 years.

Al Marlowe is also a geologist and writer. He and his wife have been casting flies and lures into streams and lakes all over the West, including New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and the Texas Gulf Coast. He has been fishing for more than 40 years.

Karen Rae Christopherson is a geophysicist and writer. She has been fly fishing since 1970. She and her husband are avid fly fishing enthusiasts.

"Between the Rivers" is a compilation of humorous adventures that happen on the road, in the middle of the journey, in the campsite, at the bar, and during the fishing trips. These are tales in common with most fishing people, with travelers, with mountain folk - in short, these are tales of living the dream.
