"Joel Spring has written another page turner with his latest book At Forest's Edge. His essays take you on deer and waterfowl hunting trips, in the pheasant field with the dogs, and just reflecting on life. 'Solitude is what every human heart needs to reset itself,' Spring writes. 'To readjust and recalibrate. In the end, we'll never be healthy if we can't stand to be alone with ourselves and our thoughts.' For many that hunt, fish or trap, that is the essence of our sports. Spring says he 'loves to write' and this treasure certainly proves he can immerse the reader in his narratives. The author has the writing gift which tells a tale while connecting to readers using experiences, humor and communication skills." —Chris Kenyon, Finger Lakes Times
