Resumen:

A Good Life Wasted: Or Twenty Years as a Fishing Guide : Told through the eyes of a longtime Montana fishing guide and itinerant fishing bum, A Good Life Wasted offers a unique perspective on an implausible period in the recent history of human civilization. When Dave Ames started guiding, Rocky Mountain locals rode horses and dug camas roots; now they're trading stock options on cell phones. The collision of stone and computer ages was short-lived, but the deep-rooted themes of this book remain. A chronicle and celebration of the fishing-guide life, A Good Life Wasted is a vicarious pleasure for anyone who has ever wondered, even once, what it would be like not to have a "real job." The book is poignant and spiritual; it's Blackfoot Indians and copper miners' daughters; it's fiddles and guitars and the fabric of space; it's about what happens to wild people when the wilderness is gone.
