Fish­ing the River of Time Tony Tay­lor, Text,$ 29.95 A sci­en­tist, teacher and de­voted fly fish­er­man re­turns to a site in Bri­tish Columbia that has shaped his life. He’s there to meet his eight-year-old grand­son for the first time. He hopes to pass on the im­por­tant lessons he has learned over 80 years: self-reliance, an affin­ity for wild places and a sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity for their pro­tec­tion. He does so by teach­ing the boy to fly fish. Tay­lor is a thought­ful, knowl­edge­able writer who has led an in­ter­est­ing and ad­ven­tur­ous life. He joins a se­lect list of fine writ­ers, com­fort­able in soli­tude, who find their in­spi­ra­tion in un­spoiled places. Rick Sul­li­van
