Rising Fish and Pointing Dogs

In his new book, Orvis Chairman Leigh Perkins reminisces on a life spent outdoors, from skipping school as a child to go bluegill fishing to hunting in India and Africa. Even in retirement, he logs some 300 days hunting and fishing. Perkins has devoted his life to the love of sport, including 30 years at the helm of Orvis, during which the company began its incredible growth which continues today under the guidance of his sons, Perk and Dave Perkins. His fondness for the companionship of those who share his passion is apparent throughout Rising, from presidents on down; Perkins has brought countless more outdoorspeople into the fold with his boundless enthusiasm for sport. Love of the outdoors and sharing it with others is the story of Rising Fish and Pointing Dogs.

"FYI all fishermen / hunters / conservationists / outdoor enthusiasts,
THIS is a piece of living history, a book that can be read many ways:
1) as a personal account of an intriguing lifetime well-spent
2) as a diary of the sporting life, full of wisdom and funny observations
3) as a generous insider's guidebook on how, where and when to chase the best sporting in the world.. or at least dream about it!
I also enjoyed the heavy binding and dense photo section. Your library needs this title, trust me!"
