Who's Reading What?

Recommended Posts

I finished "Flags Of Our Fathers" by James Bradley a couple of months back. A great book. I highly recommend it. As far as other stuff, I'm currently reading an old Dean Koontz novel right now, not bad. The man is sort of twisted. Which I like. LOL

I've checked out several of the books mentioned --lots of interesting stuff.

Fishgypsy: I'm gonna put "Inventing Montana- Dispatches from the Madison Valley" on the wish list. I've never read Leeson, that I remember. He's also got another one called "Jerusalem Creek" that sounds good too.

Right now I'm in the middle of Rivers to Run by Larry Dabelmont. Great book about the origin of Jon boats, float fishing, and some of the times that he, his family, and friends spent guiding of the Ozark streams. I really like Larry's books. I have several, and recommend them all. They are filled with interesting and humorous stories of times past hunting and fishing in the Ozarks. They bring back memories of simpler, and in some ways better times enjoying the outdoors.

Let's see...

Death, Taxes, and Leaky Waders (John Gierach), Fool's Paradise (Also John Gierach),The Longest Silence (Tom McGuane), and Trout (Ray Bergman). I tried reading A Good Life Wasted, 20 Years as a Fishing Guide by David Ames, but honestly the guy makes no sense whatsoever. I can tolerate plenty of creativity in writing, but you could tell this guy was seriously messed up when he wrote it.

I'd have to say Gierach is my favorite writer. His writing style I'd have to say is about perfect when it comes to outdoor writing.

Oh yes, also the Orvis Guide to Flytying, since I've just taken that up this winter.

The Misunderstood God by Darin Hufford.

Me and a couple of guys are doing a study on it. He points out a bunch of modern day beliefs in the church that are inconsistent with what the Word says, things we, for the most part, already have seen and agree with. But he's alittle off on some things too. But so are we, I'm sure.

It's a good book for "religious" people with an open mind who won't run the other way when their beliefs are challenged.
