Sermons in Stones

Sermons in Stones is a collection of eighteen short stories and personal anecdotes I have put together on my life spending time in a remote and incredibly inspiring river canyon deep in the mountains of Colorado. Friends, family, fly fishing – you’ll find them all in this book, and maybe even more, from this “mountain wilderness carved by a river”.

Mesmerizing and captivating
“Dave Ammons lyrical description is life on the bend in his childhood river is memorizing and captivating, luring you into his own experiences and the lessons they’ve provided to him. I am not a fisherman. Aside from a few afternoons with my grandfather as a child, it just wasn’t something I had the chance to do. But I love nature and being outdoors. Sermons in Stones is more than a view into Ammons’s world, he draws you in like you are lying on the top of that boulder peering over the edge right next to him. It’s the perfect book for a short mental vacation away from traffic, finding a parking spot, or any thing else that just seems so important yet really doesn’t matter.”
– P. Bartolini
