RETURN TO TRAVERS CORNERS: STORIESby: Scott Waldie
Travers Corners, if visited by a dedicated urbanite, would be seen as nothing more than a windblown gas station of a town that would make the middle of nowhere look like Metropolis. 6×9 inches, 288 pgs.
Literature, History & Humor
In a town of 329 beloved residents, from Dolores, who runs the beauty parlor, to Junior McCracken, the worst fisherman to never give up the sport, to Judson C. Clark, boatbuilder and Carrie Creek’s occasional guide.
But Travers Corners is more than just a gas station of a town. It’s a destination for fly fishing—a paradise made of the finest trout waters ever seen, with rivers and creeks sweeping past cattle ranches, tall grasses, and off into the timbered mountains.
In Return to Travers Corners are stories of small town friendships and fights, of famous fishermen and unlucky anglers, of trout so big they’re practically mythical, and of the ones that got away—in love and on the water. The tales of Travers Corners hearken to a simpler, more enticing world of wild places, good deeds, and the friends made along the way.
