RANGELEY, MAINE—West River Media is proud to announce the release of River Flowers, Bob Romano’s collection of short stories about wild fish, the places they’re found, and the men and women who seek them out. Bob has owned a camp in the Rangeley Lakes Region of Maine for nearly forty years. During that time, he’s followed the advice of the poet-turned-Buddhist, Gary Snyder, to “…learn the terrain, nod to all the plants and animals and birds, ford the streams and cross the ridges, and tell a good story when…he gets…back home.” Over the last twenty years, Bob has written a number books that center around small-town Maine, its people, and its fly-fishing. Just released, River Flowers is Romano’s collection of short stories, many of which are set throughout the vast North Woods that stretches through northern Maine and New Hampshire, with a few detours along the way. The book’s 217 pages contain a number of watercolors painted by the author’s daughter, accomplished artist Emily Rose Romano.With a touch of heart, soul, and a sense of place, these stories take the reader to a special world where one can smell the scent of balsam on a summer morning, marvel at the sun setting upon a backwoods pond, and feel the rush of a river while wading against its current. Don’t forget to bring your hip boots and favorite fly rod as you paddle across the sunlit lakes or cast a fly upon the many tannin-stained streams found in River Flowers
