"Go out and find someone who needs you" is the prescription a friend gives Teddy Buckley as the cure for his narrow, empty, self-centered life as a trout bum and scion of a wealthy banking family. Until his friend Clark had thrown down that challenge, life had been the perfect daily schedule of searching for rising trout, taking care of his own needs and wants. But frankly, his life up until now had seemed... well, honestly, it was pointless. Thus begins Teddy's quest for a fuller life of peace and happiness through service. His odyssey will take him to the slopes of Mt. Fuji, the rain forests of Alaska, and finally the vast open desert of New Mexico. Along the way he is tutored about the meaning of life by new friends, and at times by total strangers. But his new faith in the power of service will be sorely tested to extremes as he faces war, death, evil, poverty, deprivation of his freedom, and severe loneliness. Can he bend but not break? Can he come through his crucible a more pure and refined soul? Can he stay true to his new beliefs? Will he ever experience happiness and peace? Find out in The Man Fisher, an immensely satisfying novel.
