Nice reading, though not as humorous as, for instance, Backyard Zoo. Deals with ordinary animals such as might be found in any countryside in the east, -- rabbits, squirrels, mice, snakes, moles, shrews, deer-birds, animals and water creatures. Based on personal experiences, and, for the most part, dealing with neither pets nor pests, and with hunting only as far as possum hunts and others of that kind. He does share some experiences with bears and claims to have had an inning with an alligator (escaped or put out to fend for itself, in the Pennsylvania countryside). A book which should have a good plus sale with teen age boys and girls.
