About this title

Synopsis:

In Lines on the Water, David Adams Richards writes eloquently and movingly about his life on the shores of one of the world's great fishing rivers. With the same insight and emotion that have won him praise for his fiction, Richards brings to life a community centred on fly-fishing -- a sport that has become, for many, a way of life. Weaving together tales of the guides and poachers, the "sports" and the city slickers, Richards pays tribute to all who have shared in the joy of fishing the Miramichi.

This is a book about our relationship with nature, about hunters and fishermen, friendship and family, history and memory. Lines on the Water teems with lore and wisdom, humour, and most of all, passion.

About the Author:

David Adams Richards is an award-winning author of both fiction and non-fiction. His meditation on the joys of fly-fishing, Lines on the Water, published by Doubleday Canada, won the Governor General's Award in 1998. His previous non-fiction book with Doubleday Canada, Hockey Dreams, was a national bestseller. As a novelist, Richards is best known for his Miramichi trilogy: Nights Below Station Street (1988), winner of the Governor General's Award; Evening Snow Will Bring Such Peace (1990), winner of the Canadian Authors Association Award; and For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down. His novel The Bay of Love and Sorrows, published in 1998, received widespread critical acclaim.
