Re: “Fish Tales

Tim all of what you said is true! Please read Salmon's earlier works (ie: Home Is The River, Gila Descending (Edward Abbey liked it) and Signal To Depart (about the continued destruction of Mimbres sites) also consider taking off from Sweltering Tucson and driving I-10 to Lordsburg, turn north on NM highway 90, continue above Silver City on NM 15 to the Gila Wilderness Visitor Center/Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. See the Gila River Forks, soak in a stream side hot spring Geronimo himself rejuvenated himself! Take a fishing rod and catch a trout, small mouth bass and or a channel catfish. Cook it in a cast iron pan above searing hot coals of freshly burned juniper or mesquite you brought from you yard back in the old pueblo. And thank your higher power for Aldo leopold for saving this nearly pristine place. Then head back down 15(hopefully after sleeping along the banks of the Gila, in Gila Hot springs campgground, put to sleep by the melodice sound of flowing water.. then reurn down highway 15 back to silver city, drive through town highway 180 (14th street) turn north onto Little Walnut. Three miles up on the left is High Lonesome road which at the end is Dutch Salmon High Lonesome Bookstore and guest cottage, go on in and meet Dutch, his wife Cherri and their son Bud. Very approachable people, you may even find one of those afore mentioned works by Dobie, or Abbey and Salmons own works..................
