Review: They Shoot Canoes, Don't They?

User Review  - Brock Vance - Goodreads

It was one of the best books I have read. It tells you many interesting stories about hunting and the life of a boy. It teaches you many different techniques, and the hunting language. It is a very funny book, and I would recommend it to everyone. Read full review
