More than a collection of fishing stories, A Place on the Water is a passionate and eloquent exploration of subjects with broad appeal: love of land and water, informed and unsentimental appreciation of nature, and outrage at changes that threaten to obliterate places we can no longer afford to take for granted. In clear and sparkling prose, Jerry Dennis transports us to a world that every angler dreams of-where the very next cast will be the one that hooks something enormous and wonderful.

Editorial Reviews

"This writer-artist team shines a bright and lovely light on nature." -Los Angeles Times"Enjoyable reading with beautiful, evocative illustrations." -Sports Afield"Jerry Dennis is one of a handful of superb younger writers who love angling deeply and write memoirs full of warmth, eloquence, and wit. A Place on the Water is a book of many robust-and fragile-miracles." -Nick Lyons, author of Spring Creek"This is a book that will remind you why you've always loved fishing, canoeing, and all the other things you can only do on the water." -John Gierach, author of Even Brook Trout Get the Blues
