Praise

“This book is obviously a feast for the outdoor lover–the hunter, fisherman, or camper–but it will also draw those who love the beauty of the carefully crafted description, so detailed and vivid….The essence of Paulsen.”–Booklist

“The pieces are rooted in the details of a youth spent in search of perfection: the perfect cast, perfect catch, perfect shot…On target.” –School Library Joumal

“Descriptions of light and water, of fish and wildlife, kindle in the reader a measure of the author’s own complex respect for nature.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
