Hunting from Home: A Year Afield in the Blue Ridge Mountains

In stock


Softcover, 320 pages.

Come along with Christopher Camuto for a year of transforming experiences in the shadows of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains: hunting grouse with his setter through snowbound forests in winter; wading trout streams in spring; closely observing birds and wildlife through summer; exploring the backcountry, cutting wood, and hunting deer in autumn.

Camuto is, pound for pound, word for word, the heavyweight champion of southern nature writing. —Bloomsbury Review

The mystery of connection lies at the heart of Hunting from Home. . . . The stealthy cadence of Camuto's prose reveals glimpses of his effort to do justice to a place and way of life that often seem just beyond his reach; hunting becomes a metaphor of how to capture the natural within the self and on the page. —New York Times Book Review

Camuto's book holds many attractions: his observations about his world and its delights-the trees, the flowers, the stars, the unexpected sight of deer running through the snow on a moonlit night, the presence of Carolina wrens nesting on his front porch, the smell of newly split wood-are memorable and can hold their own with the best nature writing. —Publishers Weekly

It is difficult to imagine anyone who walks on the land with greater circumspection and appreciation than Camuto. —Kirkus Reviews
