More About This Book

Overview

The Fireside Reader is a collection of short stories that celebrate life through the outdoor experience. Using the world of hunting and fishing, Mike Yurk explores the very human issues of life and death, getting older, passing the legacy from one generation to another, the bond between fathers and sons, getting started in life and seeing your family grow. Set in middle America, the short stories reflect the values and way of life of those who live in the world of the outdoors. Written over a span of thirty years, the stories capture the changes in the outdoor world as well as some of the milestones that shaped the world during those years. With a little of something for everybody, there is humor and even a ghost story. The stories display a way of life that is rapidly disappearing. It is seeing life through the eyes of those who sit in a duck blind or wade a trout stream.
