Peach Tree in an Apple Orchard

Tales of a Southerner's Life in Vermont


Book Description

He grew up in the Georgia woods, played football for the New Orleans Saints, spent a few years as a ski bum, put in his time as a Vermont farmer, and eventually sold his farm to take a desk job. Through all this, writer Paul Fersen has never lost his sense of humor or appreciation for a good hunting dog. These are tales of becoming a New Englander while remembering a strange and distant life in the rural South, of building one's own home and raising a family, of finding the best dog ever, of catching the biggest fish with his smallest son, and finding respite in the field with dog and duck. A wonderful collection of stories outdoorsmen and women will laugh along with, in small doses or all at once.

Paul Fersen is a longtime staffer for Orvis, and who has written a regular column for Stratton and frequently contributes to Gray's Sporting Journal. He lives in Dorset, Vermont.
