Driftless Stories: Outdoors In Southwest Wisconsin by John Motoviloff (c2001)

My favorite part of Wisconsin is the rolling-hilled and river-laced Driftless Area in the Southwest corner of the state. Same goes for Wisconsin author John Motoviloff. In Driftess Stories, Motoviloff delivers a collection of vignettes based on his outdoor adventures in the region, and while they focus primarily on fishing and hunting, it's his reverence for the Driftless landscape itself that really shines through. Beautifully written with a style that made me recall Hemingway's Nick Adams Stories more so than I did Field & Stream or Outdoor Life. Check catalog for availability.
