Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553344862, Paperback)David James Duncan's first novel has gained an increasingly wide audience over the years--some might even call it a following. This coming-of-age tale of Gus Orviston's search for the Pacific Northwest's elusive steelhead, a metaphor for Gus's internal quest for self-knowledge, appeals to all who cherish a good yarn and memorable characters. Uncle Zeke's colorful rendition of Gus's conception on the banks of the Deschutes River is itself worth the price of purchase.

Since its publication by Sierra Club Books nearly two decades ago, "The River Why" has become a classic, now standing with Norman Maclean's "A River Runs Through It" as the most-read fiction about fly-fishing of our era.
