Publisher's Summary

This classic captures the endearing relationship between a man and his grandson as they fish and hunt the lakes and woods of North Carolina. All the while the Old Man acts as teacher and guide, passing on his wisdom and life experiences to the boy, who listens in rapt fascination.

Lost Days

This book is a treasure. Though it takes place in the '20s, I lived similar experiences in the 50s outside Jackson, Tennessee. Looking forward to more audiobooks from Robert Ryan like "Somehing of Value" and "Uhuru". Enjoy.
