Don Daughenbaugh is having a book-signing Saturday November 5, 2022 from noon to 3 P.M. at Faith United Methodist Church (700 Fairview Dr, Montoursville, PA 17754).

Writer, naturalist, biologist, photographer, river guide, park ranger, trap shooter, teacher, fly-tyer, coach, casting instructor, raconteur, in a word… DON DAUGHENBAUGH. Great People, Great Rivers is the collected wild life of Don Daughenbaugh: a historic view of people and places, intimate stories that are often short, but always sweet: Catching eels as a boy for the family table or skating miles down an ice-covered river to town; Helping a congressman’s girlfriend claim the most fish on a sunny day at Jackson Hole; Leading the annual August gathering of U.S. statesmen at Old Yellowstone’s south gate where the Lewis River joins the Snake; Relaxing at Camp David with the President and family, true friends, or Being driven off the river by an ornery bison. It’s a Great Read
