About this Item

Boulder: Pruett Publishing Company, 1996. [1989] Green Linen in matching green linen slipcase. Chatham artwork let in to the front cover. One of 96 copies of a Tribute Edition published after Harry's untimely death, with a goal of raising money for his two son's college fund. Signed by seven people who recognized Harry's incredible writing ability: Author/Artist Russell Chatham, Bob Bender (Harry's edition at Simon & Schuster), Nick Lyons (To whom the original book was dedicated), George Maurer, Bill Trego (Publisher at Meadow Run Press), Author Thomas McGuane, & Steve Bodio. "The angler hopes for nothing and prays for everything; he expects nothing and accepts all that comes his way. And although he knows all along that he will never sink his hook into a trout stream's true mystery, the desire to try, to cast once more and once more again, is never quenched, for there is always the chance that one more cast will carry him beyond skill and luck and bring him untarnished magic." It is the year 1965, a year rife with change in the world--an in the life of a boy whose tragic loss of innocence leads him to the healing landscape of the Ozarks. Haunted by indescribable longing, twelve-year old Harry is turned over to two enigmatic guardians, men as old as the hills they farm and as elusive and beautiful as the trout they fish for--with religious devotion. Seeking strength and purpose from life, Harry learns from his uncle, grandfather, and their crazy Sioux neighbor, Elias Wonder, that the very pulse of life beats from within the deep constancy of the earth, and from one's devotion to it. Amidst the rhythm of an ancient cadence, Harry discovers his home: a farm, a forest, a mountain stream, and the eye of a trout rising. "This is a grand true story and its wonderful old men are classic American characters." Annie Dillard "A haunting book, beautiful and funny and sad, written with enormous warmth and grace." Ted Leeson "[H]is masterpiece, a haunted and haunting memoir of growing up in the Ozarks with two eccentric old men as guardians, both of whom are dedicated fly fishers. [H]e left a legacy that demonstrated both his awareness of mortality and his appreciation of how fishing could momentarily stay it." Fly Rod and Reel, July/October 1996 "His warmly elegiac memoir shows that in the modern world, madness may be saner than sanity." Los Angeles Times Book Review, March 24, 1996 "Poetically written, filled with neat anecdotes and salty reflections warm and wonderful." Kirkus Reviews Accompanied by a letter from Jim Pruett explaining the tribute edition. Bookseller Inventory # 00861
