"Readers will appreciate Johnson's descriptions, and David Burckhalter's photos, of country and cultures with features often beautiful, charming, alien and occasionally edgy."
"David Burkhalter's brilliant color and black-and-white photographs of the scenery and people of the region supplement the text. Besides being a book about trout, it is also a compelling story of both natural and human history in land that is changing environmentally with soon-to-be-seen consequences."
"Johnson set out to write a guidebook on trout fishing in Mexico but ended up spending 10 years recording the changes that occur in a land and its people as the modern world reaches them.David Burkhalter's spectacular photographs illustrate the beauty of this remote world. This book should please anyone interested in Mexican history and ecology--or fishing."
