"From its intriguing read-me title to its elegiac final sentence, Josh Greenbergs Rivers of Sand is a delightful gem thatwhether you are a Michigander or notdeserves an honored place in every literate fly anglers library, because, like Thoreau, he has managed to make the local universal. Greenbergs accessible, conversational voice delivers the kind of experienced knowledge and wisdom that benefits fly fishers everywhere. Its the next-best thing to spending a day on the water with Josh as your guide, patiently unraveling the mysteries and secrets of fly fishing as you go."
Robert DeMott, editor of Astream: American Writers on Fly Fishing
"Every year or two, or maybe even five, a wonderful book arrives that infuses a compelling narrative, accomplished lyric prose, and practical dispensation of rarified knowledge, a singular book, in other words, that could not have been written by anyone other than its author. This one, Rivers of Sand, happens to be about fishing. Whats more, its author, Josh Greenberg, seems chosen by its subject . . . much the way a large wary trout turns to take an Adams from amidst a blanket hatch of mayflies.Reader: Rise for this book!"
Chris Dombrowski, author of Earth Again
"Rivers of Sand pulls you forward with a beautiful and compelling blend of history, people, rivers, flies, and the introspection of a fine, inquiring mind, not to mention one hell of a lot of incredibly practical information about Michigans trout and some other species as well."
Joseph Heywood, author of The Snowfly and the Woods Cop Mystery series
