Softcover, 303 Pages.
This timeless classic, originally published in 1957 and never out of print, tells the story of a remarkable friendship between a young boy and his grandfather. The Old Man and the boy hunt the woods and fields of North Carolina together; they fish the lakes, ponds, and sea. All the while the Old Man acts as teacher and guide, passing on his wisdom and life experiences to his grandson, who listens in rapt fascination.
In Ruark's skillful hands, the book becomes much more than a boy's early lessons in hunting, fishing, and camping. It is a heartwarming, eloquent, and ultimately poignant tale about choices, about responsibility, and about becoming a man.
“Filled with homespun humor and salty common sense. This is a book to be savored slowly, and kept and cherished.” ―Herald Tribune
“Written with great joy . . . the book is a delight to read.” ―Library Journal
