Reviews

Home for Dennis ( It's Raining Frogs and Fishes ) is Michigan's Upper Peninsula. There he has fished streams from the Soo in the East to rivers in Ontonagan County in the West, adding an occasional trip to the northernmost area of the Lower Peninsula. Although his father was addicted to bass fishing, Dennis early became an aficionado of angling for trout. He also developed a fondness for canoeing; one of his book's best passages chronicles a trip down the roiling white waters of the Presque Isle River. Another chapter covers his efforts to prove that Ernest Hemingway, who spent several summers as a youth in the U.P., was not writing about the Two Hearted River in his famous story bearing that title. The collection, gathered from pieces that have appeared in the New York Times , Outdoor Life and other publications, will interest ecologists, campers and nature lovers of any stripe or speckle.
