This week on Valley Writers Read, we hear several short stories from the book "Take Me to the River: Fishing, Swimming, and Dreaming on the San Joaquin." This collection of stories about the San Joaquin River was edited by Joell and Coke Halowell. The book is the result of a decade long series of interviews with people who have deep connections to the river.

From the days of wild salmon runs and and the construction Friant Dam, to the creation of the San Joaquin River Parkway, the stories tell us not only about river life, but also about the ever changing landscape of the San Joaquin Valley.
