Synopsis: In this day and age of immediate e-mail transmissions, satellite phones, ATV's, infa-red imaging and other high-tech contrivances, it's refreshing to step back a mere 30 years and vicariously re-live true 'Hard Hunting.' Patrick Shaughnessy and Diane Swingle take the reader through a series of true 'blue collar' expeditions. As they relate assorted exciting hunts during a 2-month sojourn in British Columbia in the late summer and early fall of 1973, the reader - especially true outdoorsy types like myself - find themselves intrinsically involved in every step of their hunts. Both professional business-types at the time they embarked on their adventures, they leave the hustle and bustle of civilization and return to a lifestyle not seen since the days of the mountain men. Shaughnessy and Swingle are both excellent writers, and craft their assorted tales - each taking turns throughout the book - in thoughtful, yet easy-to-read styles. The final paragraph of the book is uncannily accurate in a forward-thinking way, and left this reader - 30 years after the words were written - intrigued at the truthfulness of it all. A great read!
