While father and son fishing trips can be the stuff of American legend, they can also turn out to be the stuff of anger, love and self-discovery.nbsp; In his memoir of a fishing trip through the Alaskan wilderness, Lou Ureneck brings to life the struggle to reclaim the trust of his teenage son, Adam, following his divorce.nbsp;Told against the backdrop of the Alaskan wilds,Backcastis the remembrance of a fishing trip that carried a father and son from the mountains of Alaska to the Bering Sea.nbsp; Along the way, nature transforms from friend into foe, and their struggles arenbsp;played out against the poignant emotional battle raging between the two as they descend the river headed toward confrontation. On their journey, the two encounter nature’s dangers — bears, violent river currents and ruthless, punishing weather — as well as the hurts that exist between them, the reasons for divorce, the absence of a father and the withheld love of a son.nbsp; Dipping his hand into the river of his own life, Ureneck recounts his own fatherless childhood, the influence ofnbsp;his mother’s boyfriend who helped him learn to fish, and the realization that he himself had done the one thing he always promised himself he would not do: He ended his marriage in divorce. Part adventure story, part reconciliation with life’s unexpected turns, and part commentary on the healing power of nature, “Backcast” explores the world of a man confronted by the hard choices divorce can bring to create a moving meditation on fatherhood.
