Essays and Stories on the Out-of-doors.
M. Forster once wrote, “I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little farther down our particular path than we have gone ourselves.” This entry into the Gene Hill sporting collection takes you even further down the trail of the sporting life. He is your honorary guide to a world where bird dogs, fly rods, and shotguns are more than mere objects, they evoke memories of special times and places spent afield.
Gene’s passion for the details of human experience is as much his hallmark as his thick mustache and love of Labs. In “Special Spots,” his attention to details is plainly evident as he describes a river as a place “. . . where I could lay me down and listen to the water and think about where it came from, how it turned, and curved and hushed itself and sometimes laughed or argued.”
His essays transcend the bounds of writer-reader relationship. He tugs at your shirtsleeve and pulls you along on a magnificent journey to that mystical covert over the next rise or to that last bend in the river—places you’ve long wanted to explore. Sit back, now, and enjoy those places with one of America’s finest writers.
