A boisterous, eloquent meditation on youth, nature, America, poetry, and what it means to live with an open though often wounded heart

“An epic storyteller who deals in great vistas and vast distances.”—The New York Times Book Review

Maybe I went in with my expectations too high, but this is my 2nd attempt at a Jim Harrison book and I can't get through them . . . I much prefer Thomas McGuane and William Kittredge.
