Overview

“These poems tell stories of the place where I live and the

place I love. These are poems that will touch you and make

you think. Many you will read over again.”

—Marty Sherman, former editor of Flyfishing magazine,

and salesman for ClackaCraft Drift Boats

“Norman Maclean wrote that, ‘Under the rocks are the

words, and some of the words are theirs.’ This is the

ancestral place from which Scott Starbuck dipped his

hands and brought us poetry. This is the human condition

diffused like sunlight through water. Starbuck has shown

us brightly colored flashes of life that appear and vanish in

the blink of an eye like a trout rising then gone.”

—David Joy, author of Where All Light Tends to Go

“Scott T. Starbuck’s Lost Salmon, a collection of seventynine

short poems, also reads like one long poem given the

ways in which it accumulates toward a single clear-eyed

vision or meditation on time and memory. And which is

to say that each moment recorded enacts that lovely-sad

mix of elegy and celebration.”

—Jack Driscoll, author of Fishing the Backwash

“Starbuck is a poet who has fished and is still looking for

that perfect fish—and poem. Always happily searching

like a good steelheader to the end of the day.”

—Frank Amato

“Scott Starbuck has a way of defining the world in these

calm and graceful poems capturing the rhythms of water

and sky. There is grace and light in his words. A charming

collection of poetry you will return to again and again.”

—Larry Gavin, author of Stone & Sky
