9780030279102: The Old Man and the Boy

THE OLD MAN AND THE BOY is about the kind of boyhood every youngster dreams of, the kind of golden years every older man hopes for. It reads like fiction, but it's true.

Robert Ruark grew up in North Carolina. His grandfather was his mentor, his companion in the field, his teacher at streamside and lake. Young Ruark thought he was learning to fish and hunt -- really he was learning about life. Decades later, long after the old man was gone, Ruark realized how many of the lessons still sustained him. He paid his debt in this one-of-a-kind recollection.
