Lovely nature writing.

A lyrical story through which the reader will rejoice in an uncommon life. From farms and baseball fields and tree-forts, to coming of age in the late sixties, to Alaska, the Caribbean, and commanding a Coast Guard Cutter in the great Lakes, commencing in a return to the simple earth, and the joy of fishing for brook trout, and tending grapevines.

"Deeply moving...told with all the tropes a good poet would use...Vivid description...a delightful sense of humor...a novelist's skill with scene and feel for dialogue..." - Cathy Smith Bowers, former Poet-laureate of North Carolina.
