Where to buy it


The second volume of Gordon Davies' collection of stories features the rivers of British Columbia and the Yukon. Travelling from the turbulent Yukon in the far north to the streams flowing into Washington State, Davies acts as a guide to fisher and non-fisher alike.

The avid fisherman will find information about the types of fish in each river as well as suggestions as to the best lures and bait. The non-fisherman will find a wealth of material about the life of the rivers and interesting sites along their banks. With its many maps, lists of directions and superb photos, The Living Rivers is a book to delight all those interested in the outdoors.

About the author

Born in the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Wesminster, BC in June, 1924, Gordon Davies says that an hour after his birth he opened his eyes, glanced out the window at the big Fraser River and said It looks like a person could catch trout and salmon from those sandbars. Today, still drowning worms in rivers from the Yukon Territory to BC, Washington and Oregon, California and western Mexico, this incurable river angler continues to fish, explore, photograph and fall into rivers throughout the west. During his working career, Gordon was a journeyman printing pressman and an owner-manager of a commercial printing shop, and later a journeyman compositor in daily and weekly newspapers. He has also been a freelance angling writer in magazines and newspapers in Canada, and the USA and in three english-language publications in Baja California, Mexico.
