This is a book about our relationship to the river. It is about fishing, and loss. It is a book for anyone who has ever fished a river, or has ever stood beside a river and wondered. —Globe & Mail
Getting to know a river is one of life's great joys. It usually requires months spent standing on the bank, or wading in, waving a fly rod. River of the Angry Moon, with its gracious prose and wonderful detail, has managed to boil the process down to a few exhilarating hours. —Paul Quarrington
