Works on hunting, fishing and more in a variety of insights into one man's life.

Several sonnets and traditional forms and used, but mostly informal, rhymed couplets that compliment the subjects.

From the introduction, "One sunny afternoon in 2010I chatted with a colleague of mine over adult beverages in his family room in Las Vegas. He mentioned a new colleague, a lawyer, with whom he was working on M&A projects. He said the fellow was a pilot and I would probably enjoy meeting him. Then he showed me a book the fellow had published. It was a collection of poems and pictures describing his childhood and teen years. My reaction was, "I can do that!" And so it began."

Lewis Watt is a colonel of the United States Marines, no longer on active duty, having served twenty-six and one-half years, including nineteen months flying combat in four different aircraft, as well as five years as a test pilot and teacher of test pilots.
