As fall settles in it’s a great time to take your fly-fishing indoors and curl up in a chair with a great read. One of my favorites is Steve Raymond’s, Rivers of the Heart: a Fly-Fishing Memoir; illustrated by August C. Kristoferson. A contemplative book, Mr. Raymond shares those things that matter most: the people, places, and things vital to his sport and to him.

What It Used To Be Like: a Portrait of My Marriage to Raymond Carver

Special Collections -- Northwest Collection
