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.
