Paul Hoobyar, 2018. Rogue River Reprieve. A novel about a Rogue River fishing guide named Beck Stoddard. For Stoddard, being a fishing guide on the Rogue is about as close to paradise as any mortal can get. He’s paid to float through remote wilderness canyons and witness the color changes of the trees in the fall, the habits of deer, bear and cougar, and the seasonal migrations of salmon and steelhead. He marvels as these silver-sided beauties push against the relentless onslaught of the river in a timeless cycle of migration from the Pacific Ocean to the high Cascades to spawn and nourish a new generation. When Stoddard encounters a woman stranded in the middle of the river’s most notorious and dangerous rapids, he embarks on a different kind of adventure. She’s intent on stopping a proposed acid leachate mine in the lower canyon and becomes Stoddard’s guide as he faces a quagmire: will he join a fight that pits him against a multi-national’s slurried plans? Knowing his decision could flush him out of his cloistered corner of Eden, Stoddard plunges into an adventure that transports him to new vistas and insights.
