Update: I read this book a few years ago, and at the time I thought it was just "okay." I'm so glad I gave it another go. This time I enjoyed it quite a lot more, and had a lot less difficulty reading it. This probably has to do with the fact that not only am I a few years older, but I am also more familiar with the areas that Dennis McIlnay was discussing throughout the book. For fans of local history and for fans of nature, I'd definitely recommend this one!

Review 2008: Okay, so let's see...I
Great read if your interested in history, (local for me) or fishing. It helps that the author autographed my copy!
Interesting Pennsylvania history and a lot of information on fishing
