New Books: W.D. Wetherell's Yellowstone Autumn

Writing about novelist W. D. Wetherell’s new Yellowstone Autumn (University of Nebraska Press, March 2009, 178 pages), Jenny Shank recites a lesson learned in college about walking through life upright rather than being dragged along by its currents, quoting a favorite professor and T. S. Elliott: “Father Dunne would say that fly fishing, an activity that seems to bring Wetherell contemplative, quiet engagement with nature, delivers him to what T.S. Eliot called ‘the still point of the turning world’–from which he can make the wisest decisions.” Wetherell’s new book chronicles his attempt to find insight for post-middle age during a fishing trip to the Park.
