50% off-Gently used HB-BABINE, A 50 YR CELBRATION OF A WORLD RENOWNED STEELHEAD AND TROUT RIVER by Pierce Clegg & Peter McMullan
Rivers are sacred and none more so than those that have the holy trinity of salmon, grizzly bears and steelhead. This book, a collection of tales on fishing, companionship and the power of dreams, is about one of those special rivers. Because of the hard work of some of those whose writing appears in this book, a narrow corridor of forest shelters the Babine. As it flows between those green, cathedral walls, carrying the salmon and steelhead back to their natal waters and giving tantalizing life to the flies cast by fishermen, the river seems a blessed, protected place. The Babine, and the lodge that gave generations of anglers access to the sacred waters, come to life in these pages. There are some great fishing stories, but this is far more than a book about fishing. It's a book about what's important in life. It's a book about a beautiful, wild river and the dream that it can be saved as it is, forever. The economic forces aligned against the Babine are great. Are the hearts of those who love the river greater? After turning these pages, I think you'll see that they are. This is a sacred river and it cannot be lost. It can be saved but only if enough people care.
