Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Walt Harrington was first invited to Kentucky to hunt with his African-American father-in-law and his country friends — Bobby, Lewis, and Carl — he was a high-flying reporter for The Washington Post with a distaste for killing animals. But over the next twelve years of hunting with these "good ol' boys," this white city-slicker entered a world of life, death, nature, and manhood that came to seem beautiful in a way his experience in Washington was not. In crisp prose that brings autumn mornings crackling to life, The Everlasting Stream shares the lessons that led Harrington to leave the city. When his son turned fourteen, Harrington began taking him hunting, too, believing that these rough-edged, whiskey-drinking men could teach his suburban boy about lives different from his own, the joy of small moments, and the old-fashioned belief that a man's actions mean more than his words. The Everlasting Stream is a funny, intimate, inspiring meditation on the meaning of a life well lived. "Beautifully written, cleverly informative, and, at times, hilarious ..." — Pete Earley, author of Circumstantial Evidence
