Hooking the little trout at Karen's Pool on Starlight Creek after all these years made me yearn again not for how my memory has shaped and reshaped that moment on this pool when I hooked my first trout but for the original experience itself, just that moment of pure undiluted excitement and joy and wonder, that moment of perfect magic and mystery, that mix of exhilaration ...more

Typical Harry Middleton. Funny yet sad. Harry has this way of making you feel as if your in the story with him, standing beside him, seeing what he is see, feeling what he is feeling.

Recommends it for: nature or outdoor enthusiasts, fly fishers
Harry Middleton has been a favorite author of mine since the early 1990s, when I first read his book, The Earth is Enough. His ability to evoke emotion and memory is incredible. It is unfortunate that such a great voice in fly fishing literature became silent so young. Harry Middleton was 43 when he suffered a fatal heart attack. He left behind a treasury of five books, with Rivers of Memory his last. It was written after he lost his job as writer and editor at Southern Living magazine.

“Rivers course through my dreams, rivers cold and fast, rivers well-known and rivers nameless, rivers that seem like ribbons of blue water twisting through wide valleys, narrow rivers folded in layers of darkening shadow, rivers that have eroded down deep in a mountain's belly, sculpted the land, peeled back the planet's history exposing he texture of time itself.” 7 likes
