Coming Soon from John Gierach's Fly-fishing Library
In Dickerson's clean prose, they speak with the bedrock and the cobbles, with the author's beloved salmonids, and--yes--the author himself. In a world radiating with "the virtual," this book provides unmistakable contact with the actual and a rarefied depth of immersion.

Dickerson brings to the creation of fantasy epic his keen observation of the natural world. Gondisle's woods, plains, mountains, and marshes seem as real as those of our world. Whether he meant to or not he addresses the question of why we fish. In the end, as he points out, trout are unknowable — and perhaps that is part of the reason.
