This book was published by Lee Engdahl, a writer, poet, typographer, designer, and publisher based for many years in the North Bay. In the late 1980s and early 1990s he published a series of fine-press books under the "Canto Bello Series", including works by M.F.K. Fisher and Raymond Carver.

Bill Barich is an American travel, sport, and short fiction writer whose piece, "Hat Creek and the McCloud", was first published by the New Yorker (December 5, 1983). A recounting of a visit with a friend to one of California's most celebrated natural areas and their fly fishing adventure.

Hat Creek is situated in the Shasta National Forest while the McCloud river flows through Shasta and Siskyou Counties. Both are in Northern California.
