Critics hailed Robert Ruark's "The Old Man and the Boy" as a tale of "infinite warmth, wisdom, and understanding." This quiet best-seller captured the endearing relationship between a man and his grandson as they fish and hunt the lakes and woods of North Carolina. Now, the Old Man has passed on and the boy has grown up, and it's the boy's story that is told in this moving, nostalgic sequel. First published in the late 1950s and never out of print, "The Old Man's Boy Grows Older" will transport you back to the days when ice cream was made at home and when fishing was not about the fish, but about the stories you told afterward. Readers young and old will appreciate and cherish this unforgettable book.
