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.

Simply the best

Quite possibly the best book ever written about growing up. Aside from the hunting and fishing stories, the life lessons are fantastic

Fantastic read!

Having owned a house in Southport NC for several years now It was cool to find out that this is where Mr. Ruark's grandfather lived, bringing new life to an already awesome book! I've also listened to several other books read by Norman Dietz and like what he adds to the story.

AWESOME read!

I read this book as a teenager. it's still just as good. I recommend this book to everyone, especially those who like reading about hunting, fishing and life.

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.
