Robert Ruark writes a masterpiece or tenderness and wisdom.
The Old Man and the Boy
this has line drawings by Walter Dower.In this book , however , Mr Ruark turns from his unremittiing scrutiny of present turbulence to tell a tale of infinite warnthin and wisdom, Love and understanding, In The Old Man and the Boy he brings his remarkable takent to bear on a moving story from his own life--the details of his early relationship with his amazing grandfather.
The Old Man and the Boy hunt the woods and fields of North Carolina, always together; they fish the lakes,ponds, and sea. Always the Old Man talks, instructing,philosophizing. He has a infinite store of things he wants the Boy to learn to understand, to possess as hes very own. And, always, the Boy listens, quiet, fascinated. As the Boy says, " The Old Man knows pretty near close to everything. And mostly he ain't painful with it... He can... tell you why the quail sleep at night in a tight circle or why the turkeys always fly uphill."
In Mr. Ruark's skillful hands the book as far, far more then a boy's lessons in hunting, fishing, and camping out. It is a wonderfully simple saga of adolescent flowering, a subtle tale of growth under the grandfather's careful tutelage. In the touching and braveend the Old Man prepares for death (conscious always that the Boy is watching ,Learning) and the Boy, through this experience,achieves manhood.
In The Old Man and the Boy Robert Ruark has written a classic. The story of this fabulous friendship has no parallel in modern literature. It may be read by young and old alike, to the great enrichment of both. It is bound to be acclaimed as one of the most moving and beautifully written tales of this or any other decade.
