A life worth living : the adventures of a passionate sportsman by Jack Hemingway( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Hemingway, son of Ernest Hemingway and one of America's best-known outdoorsmen, has written a warm and candid memoir of his life as an incorrigible sportsman. But be forewarned -- this is not a how-to book, nor a guide to secret places, though there is plenty of expertise and uncharted territory to be discovered here. Jack's season of a sportsman begins appropriately in the spring, at a dude ranch in Clark's Fork Valley, near the Yellowstone River. As an awkward six-year-old threading live grasshoppers on old, worn-out wet flies his father Ernest had discarded, Jack found his lifelong passion, much in the same way his father had so many years earlier as a child on Walloon Lake in Michigan. His summer would bring steelhead on the North Umpqua, fishing with Papa's newly christened "Christ Pants" that enabled him to "walk on water," and looking for trout along the Danube in the aftermath of World War II. Fall brings expeditions to the steelhead-laden tributaries of the Snake River, and fishing for Atlantic salmon, along with time for reflection and Jack's fervent belief that "there is always something new to learn." Balancing a self-effacing humor with a delicacy of prose both graceful and knowing, along with an introduction by Geoffrey Norman and a foreword contributed by Angela Hemingway, A Life Worth Living is a touching memoir of a lifetime spent practicing the sport he and his father both loved so much
A sportsman's life : how I built Orvis by mixing business and sport by Leigh Perkins( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Leigh Perkins bought the Orvis Company in 1965, the fly-fishing and bird-hunting outfitter was a sleepy business with annual sales that had leveled off at $500,000. But Orvis was a treasured brand that had pioneered the mail-order business more than one hundred years before, and Perkins believed he could make it grow."--BOOK JACKET. "Over the next thirty years Perkins built Orvis's annual sales to $100 million by revolutionizing the catalog retail industry and reshaping the company's tradition-bound culture. He achieved this by blending his love of nature with his business acumen and bringing the common-sense approach he learned in the streams and on his hunts to his board-room decision making."--Jacket
