In this remarkable collection of essays and stories, Jerry Dennis demonstrates why he has emerged as one of America's finest writers on nature and the outdoors, drawing such comparisons as John Voelker, Sigurd Olson, and Aldo Leopold. Ranging from northern Michigan to Iceland, Chile, and the fabled rivers of the American West, Dennis explores and celebrates the simple pleasures (and complex challenges) of famiily life, the allure of giant trout, the sacredness of secret places, and such wonders as bad weather, quirky fishing companions, and the occasional naked angler. The River Home is a passionate record of life outdoors, crafted with clarity, insight, and wit--by a writer gifted with an instinct for what matters.
Jerry Dennis writes on fishing and nature for Smithsonian, Sports Afield, and The New York Times. Author of A Place On The Water, From A Wooden Canoe and Canoeing Michigan Rivers, he lives in Traverse City, Michigan.
"This bright and sharply written book is a guide to a life lived consciously, a prerequisite and bonus of the sport done well." - Lisa Faye Kaplan, USA Today
"Jerry Dennis writes of fly fishing as well as anyone, in both essays and short stories, blending a lyric prose style with an uncommonly sharp eye and a generous imagination." - W. D. Wetherell, author of North of Now
