|| |—| || |Photo: Courtesy Island Press| Journalist and activist Dick Russell gives striped bass anglers an interesting read for those lazy afternoons when the striper fishing shuts down with his new book, triper Wars: An American Fish Story (Island Press; $27). Russell’s book interweaves personal memories, such as his first striper catch off Martha’s Vineyard, with a history of the striped bass stock, including the early success stories of the conservation effort as well as new ecological threats. Striper Wars provides readers with a compelling account of the survival of the striped bass or, as Russell writes, “The aquatic equivalent of the American bald eagle.” For more information, visit www.islandpress.org.
