Praise for A Cast in the Woods:
"New York State's ban on fracking was one of the great triumphs of modern environmentalism, and behind it lay a thousand individual stories of resistance. None has been better told than this one, by a worthy Catskills heir to the literary tradition of John Burroughs and a man who has earned his fishing."--Bill McKibben, author Radio Free Vermont
"If you love wild woods and wild trout, Sautner's word magic will transport you to the best of both. His battle to preserve them from a daunting array of natural and unnatural forces amuses even as it instructs and inspires." --Ted Williams, outdoor writer and environmental journalist

It's one thing to experience a river, and another level entirely to feel connected to a river. For the connected angler, the water is sacred... lifeblood for the soul, worth defending at all costs. A Cast in the Woods is an eloquent, honest, and beautifully written book that cuts to the conscience, and pays homage to a tiny, yet magnificent, stream that weaves into one of the most storied (yet fragile) river systems on the planet.
-- --Kirk Deeter, Vice President/Editor-in-Chief, Trout Unlimited/TROUT magazine
I'm a sucker for cabin memoirs (Walden, A Family Place, etc.). Sautner's book is a worthy standard-bearer of the genre. -- Monte Burke, Forbes
This is more than a fishing book, but I'd be remiss if I didn't note that Sautner is perhaps the best writer on this sport today. I don't make this claim lightly; my collection of hunting and fishing books long ago passed from being a passion to sheer lunacy. Sautner gets it. He gets why we fish, the beauty of running water and native fish, the joy of the pursuit. -- Matthew L. Miller, The Nature Conservancy's Cool Green Science blog
