Armed with a fishing rod and a reel, Jim Dodson embarks on a memorable journey with his seven-year-old daughter, Maggie. This is only weeks after the break-up of his 11-year-long marriage. Through fly-fishing, Dobson and Maggie form a special bond, and the author learns about life.
In FINAL ROUNDS, Jim Dodson told the poignant story of the golf trip of a lifetime with his terminally ill father. Now, armed with a fishing rod and reel, he embarks on an equally memorable journey with his seven-year-old daughter, Maggie. Only weeks after the break-up of his eleven-year-old marriage, Jim Dodson decides to take Maggie on a fly-fishing pilgrimage across America, in search of clear running streams, swift elusive fish, a chance to heal his wounded spirit and to explain to his daughter the vagaries of life and love. It has been said that life is what happens while you're waiting to go fishing. In FAITHFUL TRAVELLERS, Jim Dodson discovers, through fly-fishing, the virtues of patience, of following the wisdom of the course and an abiding belief in plain dumb luck. As the journey deepens, and Dodson and Maggie discover the special relationship that exists only between a father and his daughter, it is each of these virtues that will help the faithful travellers find a way home again. Literate, honest, and deeply observant, FAITHFUL TRAVELLERS is a beautiful meditation on the bond between parent and child and the nature of love and loss. In FAITHFUL TRAVELLERS, James Dodso
