"These poems tell stories of the place where I live and the
place I love. These are poems that will touch you and make
you think. Many you will read over again."
--Marty Sherman, former editor of Flyfishing magazine,
and salesman for ClackaCraft Drift Boats
"Norman Maclean wrote that, 'Under the rocks are the
words, and some of the words are theirs.' This is the
ancestral place from which Scott Starbuck dipped his
hands and brought us poetry. This is the human condition
diffused like sunlight through water. Starbuck has shown
us brightly colored flashes of life that appear and vanish in
the blink of an eye like a trout rising then gone."
--David Joy, author of Where All Light Tends to Go
"Scott T. Starbuck's Lost Salmon, a collection of seventynine
short poems, also reads like one long poem given the
ways in which it accumulates toward a single clear-eyed
vision or meditation on time and memory. And which is
to say that each moment recorded enacts that lovely-sad
mix of elegy and celebration."
--Jack Driscoll, author of Fishing the Backwash
"Starbuck is a poet who has fished and is still looking for
that perfect fish--and poem. Always happily searching
like a good steelheader to the end of the day."
--Frank Amato
"Scott Starbuck has a way of defining the world in these
calm and graceful poems capturing the rhythms of water
and sky. There is grace and light in his words. A charming
collection of poetry you will return to again and again."
--Larry Gavin, author of Stone & Sky
