Editor reviews

When author Harry Middleton died, fans cried out to read more work by this nature writer. Editor Ron Ellis gathered Middleton's unpublished work in this collection, In That Sweet Country. In these stories, primarily about fishing, Middleton shows mastery for catching beauty through lyrical prose. With his relaxed pacing and quiet, dignified tone, audio artist Bill Dewees brings to life these short stories. Some are humorous, some simple and sweet, and some contemplative. This is a great collection for those who love the peace of the country.


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, Field & Stream, Country Journal, Smithsonian, and Sierra, 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. Listeners who have loved 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.”
