They met at a poetry reading, but Ehor Boyanowsky and British Poet Laureate Ted Hughes became friends through their shared — and unquenchable — passion for fishing. Against the backdrop of the Dean River, one of the greatest steelhead rivers in the world, the two men explored their mutual regard for the planet's wild places. Boyanowsky draws on personal correspondence, interviews, and journal entries to recreate their encounters in the 1980s and '90s, when Hughes was at the height of his power and influence, and to paint an intimate portrait of a lifelong outdoorsman, conservationist, and artist. Dedication in the hand of the author to a B. C. sportswoman and friend, to the half-title page. 200 p., [12] p. of plates : illustrations, maps, portraits ; 22 cm. Very clean and bright appearing virtually 'as new'. Unpacked weight, 394g.
