ADVANCE PRAISE FOR The Jon Boat Years
“The tales recounted in The Jon Boat Years transcend time and ensure Jim a spot in the revered history of outdoor literature.”—Joey Frazier, editor, South Carolina Wildlife
“This book shows [Mize] to be one of our finest outdoor writers of any kind. He combines spot-on descriptions with searing insights into the human heart. . . This book is one I’ll treasure and revisit often.” —Rob Simbeck, author of The Southern Wildlife Watcher
“The unforgettable stories in this collection will tug at your heartstrings as much as they tickle your funny bone.” —Keith “Catfish” Sutton, writer, CatfishNow
In tales spanning more than five decades, Jim Mize invites readers into carefree days hiking through the Colorado Rockies with a fly rod and leisurely casting poppers to bluegill on small southern ponds. Mize’s humorous stories entertain and return readers to their own turkey-hunting or creek-fishing excursions. Black-and-white drawings from artist Bob White illustrate stories filled with laughter, quiet contemplation, and wonder.
Jim Mize writes from his cabin in the South Carolina mountains while his Lab, Moose, keeps the bears at bay. His previous books include The Winter of Our Discount Tent, A Creek Trickles Through It, Hunting with Beanpole, and Fishing with Beanpole. His articles have appeared in Gray’s Sporting Journal, Field & Stream, South Carolina Wildlife, In-Fisherman, Great Days Outdoors, and other magazines.
