The Seven Rivers

by Douglas Stewart

ISBN 1 875989 99 4


Publication date: August 2001



First published in 1966, Douglas Stewart's book is still considered the classic account of fly-fishing in Australia and New Zealand. To the stories of fishing, from Lake Taupo to the Snowy River, Stewart brings his poet's eye for nature and for the human beings encountered along the way. Fishing, as he makes clear with his sense of humour and drama, is about much more than fish.

The introduction, commissioned for this reprint, is by the poet's daughter, Meg Stewart, a Sydney author (Harry Moon) and film-maker.
