Call of the River : Writings and Photographs
The river calls to us, beckons us to sit along its banks, to cast a fly and lure an elusive fish, to canoe its shallows and shoot its rapids. The river even tempts us to capture its spirit with the written word, which each of the eight writers collected here have succeeded in doing. These are essays, adventure stories, reflections, even confessions about the power rivers have over us, written by people who for one reason for another were compelled to explore, to navigate, to conquer the flowing water. From poets to white-water guides, naturalists to adventures, each contributor brings to their pages a different aspect of the river experience.Complementing this diverse group of writings, gathered by editor Page Stegner, are sixty-one full-color images that add a stunning immediacy to the river experience and make reading this collection and exhilarating journey.
