San Juan River chronicle by Steven J Meyers( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With an abundance of lyricism and insight, Steven Meyers writes about the natural history and sporting opportunities found on his home river, the San Juan of New Mexico. Rising out of southern Colorado's majestic San Juan Mountains and flowing through the arid hardscrabble of the Southwest, the San Juan has garnered a devoted following of fly fishers. This classic tailwater fishery is renowned around the world for easy access and trophy-sized trout. But with fame comes a cost, and the river is now host to a carnival of crowds, poachers, and crass trophy seekers. Meyers mourns the loss of solitude while celebrating his own ways of seeking solace on a river known only superficially by most who fish its hallowed pools and riffles"--

Notes from the San Juans : thoughts about fly fishing and home by Steven J Meyers( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This book, more than anything else, is a book about place. Centered on the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado, a range of jagged peaks inhabited by the sometimes equally jagged people of small mountain towns, it is a book about the search for a place to call home, after other homes have been wrecked. Steve Meyers, a transplanted Easterner, speaks for tens of thousands of younger people who have searched for a way of life outside of the homogenizing pressures of contemporary American society. His search led him to the San Juans and he writes with extraordinary warmth and depth about a way of life that has become increasingly rare and a region that has managed to maintain its startling beauty and idiosyncrasies; and he writes movingly about a father who vanished and about personal loss and about triumph. Throughout the book, wild trout and colorful people appear as comfortable residents of this relatively remote region in which the act of fly fishing seems as natural as eating and sleeping. Ultimately Notes from the San Juans is the story of a man who has been seduced by the pleasures of the mountains and the joys of fly fishing and bright mountain streams--but it is also very much a story of human values and courage and hard-won joy"--

Lime Creek odyssey by Steven J Meyers( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Steven J. Meyers explores the beauty and personal significance of a small stream in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado in this seamlessly written extended essay. With a precision that can only come from extraordinary sensitivity and careful exploration over a long period of time, he shares with us, through eloquent prose and subtle photographs, the details and nuances of an environment. In the tradition of the great nature narrative, the author's discoveries along Lime Creek echo the universal paradoxes of man's relationship to the natural world. His inner experience of the healing power of solitude and natural beauty is interwoven with a philosopher's transcendent vision. An intimate evocation of place, Lime Creek Odyssey belongs on the nature lover's bookshelf next to Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Arctic Dreams, and The Solace of Open Spaces. A stunning verbal and visual portrait of a place--one man's intimate discovery of the meaning of home"--Provided by publisher
