In Backtrack, former naval officer, avid outdoorsman, sportsman, editor, and award-winning journalist V. Paul Reynolds journeys back along the path of his life to revisit and share with readers many of his outdoor experiences. Reynolds was introduced to the outdoors by his father, Harvard Reynolds, in the 1940s. Later, Harvard eventually took his son to his first smoke-filled hunting camp, where amber liquid flowed and profanity filled the room. Reynolds soon understood how the outdoors could bestow both the love of nature and the joy of friendship. Reynolds' journey has since carried him from the brooks of Maine to the hallways of Augusta, where he worked for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, and the editorial offices of the Northwoods Sporting Journal, where he serves as editor and publisher. Now, the eloquent and thoughtful writer brings readers along on the trail to skin a deer in the field, fish with his dad, and hunt with his wife, Diane, herself a dedicated outdoorswoman.

If you enjoy hunting or fishing, then Backtrack should be at the top of your reading list. Reynolds is a seasoned writer, hunter and fly fisherman. With numerous outdoor adventures under his belt, Reynolds takes readers down memory lane, using his clever wit and tongue-in-cheek humor to share thoughts about his more memorable trips. His stories are entertaining and seasoned with subliminal pearls of wisdom that force you to reflect upon your own outdoor adventures over the years which, likely, included some very colorful characters. Backtrack is a beautiful book, from the elegance and quality of its cover, paper and photos to the eloquence of Reynolds writing. Mainers will, especially, appreciate the complete list of Maine's remote trout ponds. If you re looking for a special gift to give to an outdoor sporting enthusiast, then look no further. Backtrack is a winner! --Paula and Bruce Jensen, Montana wildlife photographers and outdoor writers
