Merely an all time classic. Oct 10, 2013

Robert Ruark was the writer Hemingway wanted to be. The Old Man and the Boy is an account of his youth under the mostly watchful eye of his grandfather, who was an "old man" of a type who is seldom encountered today... although they were fairly common a century ago.
I buy copies of 1st editions and present them to young people who would otherwise never benefit from such a lifestyle.
