For years, Charles Fergus chronicled his outdoor activities in the Pennsylvania Game News' popular 'Thornapples' column and other magazines. Some of the best of his writings are now collected in this illustrated volume. Following a fox, gathering nuts, watching fireflies, tracking a bear, listening to peepers, hunting deer, searching for giant trees, camping alone -- a year of adventures and rambles in the natural world, all described in vivid detail and filled with the timeless spirit of the great outdoors.
