Chasing Ghost Trout

By Dennis Dauble

Nonfiction, 208 pages, 5.5″ x 8.5″
Softcover

ISBN 979-8-4974-4461-2

Chasing Ghost Trout is award-winning author Dennis Dauble’s most personal book to date. Every page of this so-called “fishing memoir” shares the events and people that shaped his love for wild trout and the streams of northeastern Oregon’s Blue Mountains.

Chasing Ghost Trout is a rollicking ride through five decades of memories that show how the spirit of family and a love of nature can carry us through life. Dauble tells stories about encounters with wood ticks, a first steelhead, cleavage from heaven, sibling rivalry, old trucks, giant bull trout, organized religion, and a legendary rock formation. Even through the pain and uncertainty of his battle with prostate cancer and the loss of dear family members, comfort is found in the constant companionship of his Grandpa Harry’s battered willow creel—aka fish box—and its elusive collection of “ghost trout.”

Hills, Hawgs & Ho Chi Minh: More Tales From A Wayward Runner

By Don Kardong

Nonfiction; 254 pages; 6″ x 9″
Softcover

ISBN 1-879628-12-0

At the heart of every run is an adventure, and never has adventure running been given such full voice as in this collection of stories by Don Kardong, a former Olympian and world-class marathoner. Among the tales here, Kardong relates 10 years of “ultra” running adventures, from a race across the Grand Canyon to a run up the Empire State Building to the first marathon in Vietnam.

Whether you’re an armchair athlete or a serious runner looking for inspiration and entertainment, you’ll see why Sports Illustrated called Don Kardong “the only spiritual descendent of Mark Twin ever to bring his unsparing eye and antic voice to running.”

Don Kardong finished third in the 1976 United States Olympic Trials held in Eugene, Oregon with a time of 2:13:54.  That summer, in Montreal, Kardong finished a close fourth in the men’s marathon at the 1976 Summer Olympics, just three seconds behind the bronze medal winner.  From 1977 to 1986, Kardong owned and operated a retail running store in Spokane. He was also founder and long-time director of the Lilac Bloomsday Run in Spokane, Washington, which began in 1977 with about 1,000 participants and has grown into one of the country’s largest civic running events, annually attracting over 50,000 runners, joggers and walkers.
