"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
