Carroll, author of The Year of the Turtle , here turns his attention to trout, following their annual cycle in New England streams. Like many trout fishermen, he seems to have a special affinity with nature. He writes lyrical, detailed descriptions of the countryside and woods in which trout streams are found, observing the effects of seasonal changes. Brook trout is the native fish; brown and rainbow trout are introduced species. Discussing stocking and explaining how each species has adapted, he points out favorite places of trout, admires the brook's coloration and observes their courtship rites in the autumn. His line drawings and watercolors illuminate a text that will appeal to readers who enjoy the outdoors.
