Harry Middleton has elevated flyfishing, the Smoky Mountains, and it's inhabitants to a religious experience. For some of us, it's the only religion we need...as elucidated in the 'Earth is Enough'. Majestic, god-head mountains, biblical streams & storms; saint or sinner, mystic or misanthrope mountain folk, cathedral-like venues to hell-on-earth brushes with Nature...Life as it comes and goes. In a voice quiet and sure and true, in tune with his surrounding, Middleton shares his view of 'heaven'. Anyone who shares this heaven-gate travelogue will be marked...you might be surprised how spell-binding walking with Nature can be.

I bought this and "In that Sweet Country" at the same time. On the Spine of Time is something that any fly fisher and naturalist or if you just like the Smoky Mountains should read and re-read. A fine book by an author that was taken from us too soon.

Middleton's book is a real treat. Not only do you get some wonderful tales about fishing in the Smokey Mountain National Park, but you also get some insight into the culture of those living in the area. IN effect, you getting a fishing tale with people who appear to be other worldly and unreal. The fishing takes a back seat to tales of the author interacting with these people, but it is still a fishing book. I would get it and enjoy it because it will cause, or should anyway, you to question why you fish. Great book!!!!

I have not read any prior books by this author and only purchased the book based on the reviews written on it by other agencies. Their reviews indicated that the book was well written and would provide a look into the Smoky Mountains, its trout streams and the folks living in these areas. I have to say that getting into the book was very hard as it was, to me, tedious reading from the beginning through most of the book. If one were to want some insider's view of the land, its geography, and very long winded observations of these mountains, the beginnings of this book would serve that person well. As to any writings on trout fishing, it was most philosophical and sparsely placed in the book. Towards the end of the book, it became more interesting as the author wrote more about his interactions with characters he had met in the mountains and their travels near more populated areas/towns. I would have to say that the book, again to me, was quite philosophical about one's journey into these mountains, interactions with its simple folks and why these "wilderness areas" should be maintained and designated as "wildness" rather than trying to "tame them with more roads, commercial enterprises, etc.

This is a classic book. Should be in every serious fly fishers' bookshelf. Well written with a lot of emotion and passion.
