NANFA-- book recommendation, was educational collecting

While out West, I found a copy of David James Duncan's "My Story As Told By
Water: confessions, druidic rants, reflections, bird-watchings,
fish-stalkings, visions, songs, and prayers refracting light from rivers in
the age of the industrial dark." I'd heard he was working on another book,
but wasn't aware it was out yet.

Don't fret, it applies directly to native fishes, and particularly to the
importance of being immersed in nature and touching parts of it. I've since
given away my copy, and sent another to my sister, so I don't have it on
hand to quote from right now. Suffice to say, very few books have hit me
with the impact this one has. I give it my highest praise, and heartily
recommend it to anyone who has any interest at all in sorting out how to
live with native ecosystems.
