About the Author:

Author Josh Greenberg is manager of the famous Gates Au Sable Lodge, and writes a popular, on-line fishing report that draws as many as 40,000 hits a month. He has contributed to several magazines, including Fly, Rod & Reel and Fly Fisherman. Three years ago, he contributed to a book with his boss, Calvin “Rusty” Gates. With little fanfare, and as published by a local press, Seasons of the Au Sable sold 5,000 copies in less than two years.

Review:

It absolutely was my favorite fishing read of 2014. (The Grand Rapids Press)

"From its intriguing read-me title to its elegiac final sentence, Josh Greenberg’s Rivers of Sand is a delightful gem that—whether you are a Michigander or not—deserves an honored place in every literate fly angler’s library, because, like Thoreau, he has managed to make the local universal. Greenberg’s accessible, conversational voice delivers the kind of experienced knowledge and wisdom  that benefits fly fishers everywhere.  It’s the next-best thing to spending a day on the water with Josh as your guide, patiently unraveling the mysteries and secrets of fly fishing as you go."

—Robert DeMott, editor of Astream: American Writers on Fly Fishing



“Every year or two, or maybe even five, a wonderful book arrives that infuses a compelling narrative, accomplished lyric prose, and practical dispensation of rarified knowledge, a singular book, in other words, that could not have been written by anyone other than its author. This one, Rivers of Sand, happens to be about fishing. What’s more, its author, Josh Greenberg, seems chosen by its subject . . . much the way a large wary trout turns to take an Adams from amidst a blanket hatch of mayflies.Reader: Rise for this book!”
—Chris Dombrowski, author of Earth Again 



Rivers of Sand pulls you forward with a beautiful and compelling  blend of history, people, rivers, flies, and the introspection of a fine, inquiring mind, not to mention one hell of a lot of incredibly practical information about Michigan’s trout and some other species as well.”
—Joseph Heywood, author of The Snowfly and the Woods Cop Mystery series
