The 21st Century is a time of profound and wrenching change. The phrase "stop the world, I want to get off" never seemed more appropriate. Robert Sopuck caught his first fish at age 4 in the presence of his father. That fish set off a lifetime of exploration of the natural world. He and his bride, the inestimable Caroline, live on 480 acres of wild land south of Manitoba's Riding Mountain National Park. This book is about their way of life as modern country people who have developed a profound relationship with the land, wildlife, and the ecosystem that supports them. This book describes a way of living with Nature via detailed, funny, informative, and sometimes poignant essays. The first essay, "It All Started with This Fish," describes the beginning of this journey while the second last, "Hunting with Dad" describes his emotions while speaking at his father's funeral about their shared outdoor experiences that made him who he is. In between there are hunting stories, "how to" essays on wild food preparation, and descriptions of unique wildlife experiences. "A Life Outdoors" will show the reader that there is a way of life "out there" that is authentic, joyous, and profound.
