Description

In this compilation of short stories and poetry centered on rivers, mountains, and wild locations of great natural beauty, novelist and avid outdoorsman Alan Pilkington shares the memories of the unforgettable times he spent as a young man on the banks of a mountain river outside of Melbourne, Australia. Pilkington was born into a family where the men went to the mountains and fished for trout in the tumbling streams of the southern parts of Australia's Great Dividing Range. Cultivating a lifelong love affair with the outdoors through his many stays in cabins built by successive family generations, he learned about the bush and its creatures while gaining a deep appreciation for the value of wilderness. Pilkington shares the journal entries, stories, and poems he composed while on fly-fishing and hunting adventures in Australia, New Zealand, England, the United States, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania-some serious, some lighthearted-all with a focus on rivers and how they provide inner-peace to all who seek it through them. Rivers of My Memory will touch anyone with a passion for the wilderness and who have rivers happily entwined in their memories.
