More Information
Whether Werner is describing his first and last time fly fishing as a boy on a stream in northern Maine or the golden evenings he and his wife cast to Apache trout cruising in the dim mountain light, he brings an ecologically informed, poetic sensibility to all of his fly-fishing encounters.

A rare and mysterious texture envelopes this fine first book by a haunting new writer. There is always more to fishing than fish, Black River Dreams insists. Nick Lyons, author, editor, and publisher

What we want in a book which is a celebration and a prayer to the world is the worldsome real water, real fish, old friends, maybe a bear in the back of the truck, real morning, real night, and some real weather. Maximilian Werner has written an elegant invitation to share these things; in Black River Dreams every sentence pries at us to see, to feel, finally perhaps to get up in a while and go outside. Ron Carlson, author of The Signal and Five Skies

Maximilian Werner
was born in Idaho, reared in Maine and Utah, and now lives in Salt Lake City. His essays have appeared in journals and magazines, including The North American Review, Yale Anglers Journal, ISLE, Weber Studies, Fly Rod and Reel, and Sporting Classics.
