After reading the post about fishing writers. I was wondering what you favorite story or book by John?

I don't know about my favorite book, but my two favorite stories are "the Big Empty River" and "West".

Its amazing how he so accurately portrays places and events. After visiting the greater Yellowstone area a couple years ago, I wen't back and reread some of his stories. I felt as if I was right there beside John and his crew. West isn't just a town it IS a way of life.
