About this title


A collection of essays includes reminiscences of specific hunting and fishing events, meditations on the philosophies of the two activities, and anecdotes reflecting the traditions and myths of fishing and hunting

From Library Journal:

Tapply is well known, in two disparate literary worlds, for his Boston-situated Brady Coyne mysteries and for his contemplative essays on New England hunting and fishing in magazines like Field & Stream . Most of the short essays in this collection are about learningfrom his father, from other mentors, from nature. Ultimately, they are a serious attempt not to take oneself or outdoor sport too seriously but to enjoy the values of sportsmanship. All but one essay first appeared between 1982 and 1987 in Field & Stream , Fins and Feathers , or The Drummer. Like the mysteries, these essays are urbane, smooth, yet somewhat lacking in passion. Still, they will appeal to hunters and fishers during the seasons they are not in the field. Roland Person, Southern Illinois Univ. Lib., Carbondale
