Hunting from Home
A Year Afield in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Christopher Camuto

A gifted nature writer chronicles the four seasons in the Virginia mountains

Reviews

"Camuto is, pound for pound, word for word, the heavyweight champion of southern nature writing."
Bloomsbury Review

"The mystery of connection lies at the heart of Hunting from Home. . . . The stealthy cadence of Camuto's prose reveals glimpses of his effort to do justice to a place and way of life that often seem just beyond his reach; hunting becomes a metaphor of how to capture the natural within the self and on the page."
New York Times Book Review
