This lyrical account of growing up in a family of hunters in mid-twentieth-century Albuquerque expresses a deep empathy for man's place in nature. Originally published in 1992, Robert Gish's unpretentious evocation of the mysteries of the hunt and of his deep affection for his male relatives shows us the paradoxes of men and guns: the hunter's respect for his prey and the hunt as a gateway betweenthe sacred and the profane. This is also a matchless picture of life in Albuquerque's rural South Valley, where Bob Gish's father owned a gas station and his mother ran a cafe.
