AVAILABLE OCTOBER 2015. Matthew Dickerson takes his readers from tiny mountain streams in the southern Rockies of New Mexico to the mighty Colorado River at the head of the Grand Canyon, to the Hill Country of Texas, exploring these various waters that manage to hold cold-loving trout in the midst of the hot desert landscapes of the American southwest. This lovingly described journey brings us through Dickerson's own life of discovery and his love of fly fishing, trout, and the rivers where trout live. Though neither an historical nor a scientific text, the writing is informed by both, and as readers are drawn through the tale they will grow in their own understanding of both stream ecology and the history of human habitation and consumption. The book is illustrated by original prints from Texas artist Barbara Whitehead.
