It was a fly fisher's dream - a cabin on the lower Rogue River in southern Oregon. But for Robin Carey, this new home also meant learning a new home river. In North Bank, Carey explores how new places gradually become familiar. His engaging essays describe how old memories - of family, of certain fish, of other rivers - and fresh experiences - scouting river canyons, volunteering at a fish hatchery, remodeling the cabin - have combined to shape this place on the Rogue into a place he calls home. That process, of creating home ground in a new place, is the subject of North Bank, a rich and poignant look at fly fishing, favorite rivers, and the desire for familiar landscapes.
