            Hey! Did you know that there are lots of amazing creepy crawly creatures living in our streams? Our waterways are not just home to native fishes, but to an incredible range of animals called invertebrates - animals without a backbone! Even some of the insects we think of as bein...g inhabitants of the air and bush actually live part of their lives in the water. Freshwater invertebrates are those animals that live in freshwater environments, such as rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, wetlands, hot springs, ditches - sometimes even puddles! And they include creatures such as craneflies, caddisflies and mosquitos. We also have jellyfish, crabs, freshwater limpets, mussels and clams, as well as the hydra - a freshwater relative of the anemone. Many New Zealanders have never seen us, know about us or even know where to look for us. So, come and have a look and see what other cool animals you can find in a stream, river, lake or puddle near you.

Experience the various journeys by the author, to places like remote Labrador, Alaska, Scotland, Ireland, and the Florida Keys. Enter a miniscule Pepsi shack ...on the Catawba in the Carolinas; squeeze into a tackle shop no bigger than a rooster's nest on 42nd Street in New York City; find yourself on Kettle Creek in Pennsylvania's Forbidden Lands. Not merely a travel book of fly-fishing locales, In the Company of Rivers is also infused with the fragrance of Montecristos, the plumy sweetness of vintage port, and the distinctive sizzle of sirloins on a Coleman stove. Readers will also encounter such unique characters as Mr. Earp, a 100 percent West Virginian and 50 percent Cherokee, and Mr. Cotter, the archetypal New York cop turned fly-fishing gentleman. A unique portrayal of the fly-fishing world, In the Company of Rivers will have you laughing throughout the entirety of its pages.

            From Lake Coeur d'Alene to its confluence with the Columbia, the Spokane River travels 111 miles of varied and often spectacular terrain-rural, urban, in places wild. The river has been a trading and gathering place for Native peoples for thousands of years. With bountiful trout,... accessible swimming holes, and challenging rapids it is a recreational mecca for residents and tourists alike. The Spokane also bears the legacy of industrial growth and remains caught amid interests competing over natural resources.The twenty-eight contributors to this collection-including activists, storytellers, and scientists-profile this living river through personal reflection, history, science, and poetry. They bring a keen environmental awareness of resource scarcity, climate change, and cultural survival tied to the river's fate.
