Publisher's Summary

Imagine if you could live a life in which there were no boundaries between work and play, if you could blend the job you love - running a company that is committed to excellence - with the outdoor pastimes that are your greatest passion. This is the life that Leigh Perkins has lived. Leigh Perkins bought Orvis in 1965 and over the next thirty years would revolutionize the catalog industry as he successfully blended his love for the outdoors with his business acumen. A Sportsman's Life is the story of a man, his company, and his love of the outdoors, his commitment to conservation, and his infectious enthusiasm for the good life. A great treat for any angler or hunter - or those of us who just want to dress like one.


What the Critics Say

"Orvis succeeds because Mr. Perkins sells the lifestyle that he and his wife, Romi, lead." (The Wall Street Journal)
