Format: Paperback
I think this is probably the best outdoor book I have ever read. Jerry Dennis has a way of making you laugh and realize how much the water means to you as an angler. Every angler should have a copy of this book in their library.

This is the first book by Jerry Dennis that I have read, and I love it! I grew up in Michigan and have fished some of the same places mentioned in the book. He shares some very fasinating childhood tales. I couldn't put it down until I had read it from cover to cover. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
Jerry weaves a number of tales from his boyhood through life with fine dexterity and aptitude towards the human experience. The short story of Christmas and the death of his friends father was especially touching. You won't be diappointed.

A Place on the Water Dec 23 2007

A Place on the Water: An Angler's Reflections on Home
My first review and this book deserves it. "A Place on the Water" belongs on the shelf of every outdoorsman, especially if you have fished the Midwest. Fully captures the joys of youth, family, friends, and the outdoors. The best of short story, outdoor writing.
Takes me home. June 28 2014
By Albatross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a Old Mission -Traverse City native and 'up-north' adventurer I have to say the author does a brilliant job capturing the essence of the moment. I find myself longing for another canoe trip, river fishing, weekend camping or just being outside in Northern Michigan. This is one of those books that you can read more then once and, has earned a place among my favorites!

Observations on a man's connection to the out of doors. Strong sense of place but told in a manner that is by turns heartfelt, touching and humorous Recommend to anyone who feels the tug to be at the edge of land and water.
