Atkinson's photographs of scenic fishing locales are extraordinary compositions showing off the natural beauty that abounds in and near streams, rivers, and lakes on several continents. The pictures in this book are wonderfully complemented by previously published but regionally relevant articles and stories by distinguished writers such as Tom McGuane and Ernest Schwiebert. Thus, an excerpt from Zane Grey's Tales of the Angler's Eldorado (1926) about trout fishing in New Zealand is accompanied by breathtaking photos taken there and captioned by Atkinson. Other countries extolled for their picturesque waters span North and South America and much of Europe, including Great Britain, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, and Russia. Recommended for public libraries and coffee tables everywhere.?Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs.

In this series of journeys, world-class authors' tales accompany Valentine's sublime photographs. So few of us get to travel to these locations, at least in person. Knowing that Zane Grey or Ernie Schwiebert traveled the same footpaths to the same pools and shared the same elation creates a bond only furthered by the fact that you may have just caught and released the same fish, or its offspring several generations removed.
If this book has a failing, it is that one won't want to travel with it. It would also be a great offering in a fieldguide-size format, though that of course, would not do the photographs justice. But, for streamside reading while waiting for that afternoon hatch to start, or resting a great salmon that has followed, but not yet taken your last full dress salmon fly on an exclusive river beat, it would be a welcome friend.
If fishing has a greatest reward, it is in the hunt, and Atkinson has here shared a collection of locales and adventures that will have you ready to go. Then, his details on logistics, including the right flies and rod to use and the right time of year to go, will bring the trip together. Even if you never leave your favorite armchair.
