KIRKUS REVIEW

A posthumous collection from the columns of the same name that appeared in the New York Times reveals what fun this author had with the Strong, Hardy Outdoorsman, from his frailties and foibles to his equipment, lies, hunting and fishing experiences. Skeet versus game shooters, characters not welcome on hunting trips, novices turned into fierce anglers, ways of learning safety rules, observed (and unobserved) game laws, wardens and guides, worms and toads and fly tiers, behavior when snowed in, weight tables for deer, dogs -- practical and decorative, the craftiness of deer, trout, salmon, grouse, quail, pheasant, bass and all other elusive prey, and more and more...add up to a full bag of good natured banter. Of special appeal to the dedicated, this will entertain the uninitiated.
