Summary
Salway has lived most of his life in the Mississippi river bottoms. This work is a seasonal look at his life, covering each month of his year and detailing his activities, such as deer hunting, ginseng digging, and mushroom picking. Each month closes with one of Salwey's "rat tales," personal thoughts on living off the land and protecting the river's ecology. The book includes b&w drawings and a few photos. Bestul is regional editor for Field & Stream and a contributing editor for Sporting Classics magazines. Salwey is a hunter, trapper, outdoor guide, and storyteller. The book is not indexed.
