About this title

Synopsis:

The refreshing tale of one woman's metamorphosis from a nonangling person to one of those fanatics you find on the streams every day.

From the Back Cover:

Little Rivers chronicles a woman's evolution from reluctant student to passionate angler and her adoption of this traditionally male sport as her own. But it is also much more than that.In Margot Page's own words, Little Rivers is about " a daughter coming of age after the death of her mother . . . a woman becoming a mother herself and going on to confront the mountains most of us face as we grow up: the passage of time, illness, our mortality. These are the currents that interest me. And when I sit down to write, these events are inseparable from my time on the water."Margot Page recounts for us her time on the stream in twelve exquisite essays. She invites us to her home river, Vermont's marble-banked Battenkill to Cape Cod saltwater fishing for striped bass, to Montana's big waters, and, most impressively, to the little rivers that run through her life and echo our own. Before our eyes, as we read, this granddaughter of Sparse Grey Hackle - in her debut collection of essays - emerges as her very own voice: strong, proud, and evocative. And we recognize a remarkable new presence - a female presence - in the canon of fly-fishing literature. (51/4 X 71/2, 148 pages, b&w watercolors)
