    A former student recommended this book to me, and I am glad he did. This is a delightful book that took me away to the woods to hear the birds, the flow of the rivers, and the thwacks of the fish on the rivers. The book reminds me of Izaak Walton work. Written in the late 1800s, this book is a travelogue in so many ways. Travel to Canada, the Maritimes, the Adirondacks, northern Italy, Austria. Enjoy the countryside, smell the flowers, listen to the birds, do a little fishing, fry up those trou A former student recommended this book to me, and I am glad he did.

    A delightful little book. If you are a nature lover and particularly if you are into fly fishing, it's worth reading. VanDyke travels to Europe and northern Canada primarily for his fishing adventures. Calming descriptions of beautiful landscapes. A delightful little book.

    Discovered an 1898 Scribner edition of this little gem in a bookcase nook in the parlor of Linden Hill today. Being a water/river person myself, I just had to take a peek at it. Found some wonderful wonderful bits and copied out a paragraph I love. Searched out a used copy from an old printing with the same green and cameo cover.

    "There's no music like a little river's. It plays the same tune (and that's the favorite) over and over again, and yet does not weary of it like men fiddlers. It takes the mind out of doors; and though we should be grateful for good houses, there is, after all, no house like God's out of doors. And lastly, sir, it quiets a man down like saying his prayers." - Robert Louis Stevenson "There's no music like a little river's.
