Fishing With An Old FriendLarge Print - 2000
I am one of those people who feel a connection with an animal beyond what others might consider ordinary, Joseph Monninger writes in the opening of this poignant, evocative memoir. When Nellie, his eleven-year-old Golden Retriever, develops lumps that are diagnosed as cancer, he takes her on a final road trip out west to revisit their favorite mountain haunts and trout streams. In this moving yet unsentimental narrative, Monninger captures perfectly the joys of fishing, his love for Nellie, and his passion for the natural world.
