My favorite leoplold quote goes something like this....
"There are two dangers to not owning a farm, one is to assume food comes from the grocery store, the other is to assume that heat comes from the furnace."

"The best thing about hunting and fishing is that you don’t have to actually do it to enjoy it. You can go to bed every night thinking how much fun you had twenty years ago, and it all comes back as clear as moonlight." Robert Ruark, The Old Man and The Boy.

Thanks for posting that ! For some reason or another I'd never heard of that book, I just ordered one from Amazon, I grew up reading a series of books about a young boy named Jeff White by an author named Lew Dietz, they were all about the boy growing up in the outdoors of Maine, woodsman, trapper, guide, forest fire fighter, etc, I loved those books when I was a kid, the Old Man and the Boy looks like something I will enjoy reading !
