Description

In this thoughtful collection of events and gatherings from his own life, Jake MacDonald chronicles the outdoor adventures of guys he's known. They fish, they hunt, they take off on foreign jaunts. Typical guy stuff, maybe, but MacDonald writes about these adventures with the sensitivity of a man who was taught ethics by his father, who cherishes nature, and who loves the company of women. Whether it's crack-of-dawn motel breakfasts, starlit stakeouts in the bulrushes, out-of-control helicopter rides to the barrenlands, or day trips on the blue, blue sea with the sharks circling, let Jake take you along for the ride.

Editorial Reviews

. . . MacDonald . . . comes out all right in the ring with the most famous literary fighter. . . . MacDonald paints a scene in a few well-chosen strokes: the scent of the air at dawn; a muddy article of clothing; a sarcastic line of dialogue between old friends. —Micah Toub, Quill & Quire


While MacDonald’s reverence is profound and genuine, it’s not overstated…[he] keeps his imagery vibrant without overdoing it. —Publisher's Weekly
