Book: The Imperiled Cutthroat

Australian writer and legendary fisherman Greg French lays it all out for us in his new book The Imperiled Cutthroat (Patagonia, $25), where he spins an enchanting narrative of a trip to the U.S. and his first exploration of Yellowstone. Led by his captivation with cutthroat, his tale takes the reader on a beautiful trip chasing trout (and running into bears) in some of the last wild waters in Tasmania, Mongolia, and Montana. His writing seems effortless and balanced, often philosophical, with just enough humor to offset heavier themes of conservation and history.
