Over the past 7 years, Greg Senyo developed an overwhelming customer base through his company Steelhead Alley Outfitters; the demand for many of his patterns has surpassed the supply. Because of this, he has generously written a step-by-step how-to guide to tying your own flies. Modern Steelhead and Salmon Flies will highlight 35 of the author’s signature and proven steelhead flies used across the Great Lakes, Pacific North West, Canada, Alaska – also Atlantic salmon and Lake Run Browns, tapping into and keeping up with today’s current and growing synthetic material market. Each fly design will be a visual and simulating guide through high resolution and complete step-by-step photography. Modern Steelhead and Salmon Flies will teach you how to work with synthetic materials that include the use of shanks, heavy wire, fish skulls and fish Masks, synthetic hackles and hair, new age flash, while also incorporating beads/metal components, forming and using new epoxy techniques, Copic air brushing and dying techniques, and a host of signature synthetic fibers and dubbings. With these new skills, the potential and creative possibilities of each fly-tying project will be greatly increased, while still maintaining traditional fly-tying disciplines.

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction When three-month-old Lia Lee Arrived at the county hospital emergency room in Merced, California, a chain of events was set in motion from which neither she nor her parents nor her doctors would ever recover. Lia's parents, Foua and Nao Kao, were part of a large Hmong community in Merced, refugees from the CIA-run "Quiet War" in Laos. The Hmong, traditionally a close-knit and fiercely people, have been less amenable to assimilation than most immigrants, adhering steadfastly to the rituals and beliefs of their ancestors. Lia's pediatricians, Neil Ernst and his wife, Peggy Philip, cleaved just as strongly to another tradition: that of Western medicine. When Lia Lee Entered the American medical system, diagnosed as an epileptic, her story became a tragic case history of cultural miscommunication. Parents and doctors both wanted the best for Lia, but their ideas about the causes of her illness and its treatment could hardly have been more different. The Hmong see illness aand healing as spiritual matters linked to virtually everything in the universe, while medical community marks a division between body and soul, and concerns itself almost exclusively with the former. Lia's doctors ascribed her seizures to the misfiring of her cerebral neurons; her parents called her illness, qaug dab peg--the spirit catches you and you fall down--and ascribed it to the wandering of her soul. The doctors prescribed anticonvulsants; her parents preferred animal sacrifices.
