Synopsis: When Walt Harrington was first invited to Kentucky to hunt with his African-American father-in-law and his country friends -- Bobby, Lewis, and Carl -- he was a high-flying reporter for The Washington Post with a distaste for killing animals. But over the next twelve years of hunting with these "good ol' boys," this white city-slicker entered a world of life, death, nature, and manhood that came to seem beautiful in a way his experience in Washington was not. In crisp prose that brings autumn mornings crackling to life, The Everlasting Stream shares the lessons that led Harrington to leave the city. When his son turned fourteen, Harrington began taking him hunting, too, believing that these rough-edged, whiskey-drinking men could teach his suburban boy about lives different from his own, the joy of small moments, and the old-fashioned belief that a man's actions mean more than his words. The Everlasting Stream is a funny, intimate, inspiring meditation on the meaning of a life well lived. "Beautifully written, cleverly informative, and, at times, hilarious ..." -- Pete Earley, author of Circumstantial Evidence
From Publishers Weekly:
With humor and insight, Harrington (Crossings: A White Man's Journey into Black America) weaves several themes in his tribute to friendship and storytelling: a study of masculinity, a corrective to the belief that hunting is savage, a father-son chronicle, an ode to common folks, an examination of race, and a city mouse/country mouse fable. That he uses his African-American father-in-law's annual Thanksgiving rabbit hunts as a thread to stitch these patches together only enhances his achievement. Harrington, a white, former Washington Post Magazine writer, nicely balances analytical distance with the stories of the wisecracking, whiskey-sipping black pals of his father-in-law, who are interested in shooting the breeze as much as the cottontails. With its description of crying bears and why it's better to be "off the egg" than on (i.e., able to bag a bunny), this does for hunting what A River Runs Through It did for fly-fishing. Comparing sunrises to cleaning prey might be a stretch, but not when the prose is this beautifully tactile: for Harrington, it's feral yet transporting to "cut a rabbit's belly open on a cold day and suddenly feel its innards warm your freezing hands."
