"This is an absorbing, sui generis book by a likable writer whom I have admired for a good many years. I am quite deeply, wholeheartedly, in agreement with it."-Edward Hoagland"W. D. Wetherell rails aplenty against the corrosive forces that eat away at us, body and soul; we close his book celebrating-and more committed than ever to preserving-the things that really matter: wild trout, silence, a clear view of the night sky, storytelling, the spunk and wit of sidekicks, a family gathered around the supper table on the night of first snow."-Robert Kimber"A pleasing declaration in favor of the country life."-Kirkus Reviews"W. D. Wetherell's passionate celebration of the untrendy had me cheering on every page."-Robert F.
