In That Sweet Country
By

Rating
A moving collection of fishing stories by one of America's legendary outdoor writers. Throughout his career, Harry Middleton contributed hundreds of stories, essays, and book reviews to some of the most respected periodicals, including the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Gray's Sporting Journal, and Field & Stream, among others. When he died in 1993, Middleton left behind a legacy rich with mountain streams, wild trout, and fishermen's dreams. In That Sweet Country is a fresh, exhilarating collection of a renowned fishing writer's previously published works. A recognized name in outdoor writing, Middleton brings us inspiring selections such as "An Angler's Lament" from Southern Living (1987), "Spring on the Miramichi" from The Flyfisher (1991), "A Haunting Obsession with Brown Trout" from the New York Times (1992), and many more. Readers who love Middleton's work will cherish this compilation, while novice fishermen will gain a view of the world as Middleton saw it: "There are so few left, so few who believe the earth is enough." Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
