"A whirlwind, madcap, humorous and sensitive novel"―New York Times
"A hymn to the waters of the earth and the wholeness of life. It is also funny."―Miami Herald
"A veritable epic of flyfishing... done in a high-velocity, exuberant style, sprawling in scale, heedless of form... The feeling for and evocation of the imperiled natural world is rhapsodic in its intensity; the writing energetic, literary in a distinctly American way... So amiable is the prevailing tone that the flowing narrative is able to absorb Koranic and Eastern mysticisms, Tao, Sufism, Zen-the religions of oneness and gospel of love-without turning into the kind of maudlin choral chanting that so often disfigures treatments of fusion of self and the world."―Publishers Weekly
This is a modern-repeat, modern -tale of maturity and redemption.―Christian Science Monitor --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
