|"If you don't know outdoor life, stash this guide in your pack and
you'll take along about as knowledgeable a friend as you can find. The
odds are that Indiana Outdoors will become a collector's item as
well as a practical guide." --William
Indiana Outdoors will delight lovers of that wonderland of field
and stream, woods, hill, ravine and lake, minutes from every Hoosier door.
Even if you read it while you are propped up on your pillows in bed during
a winter snowstorm, it will make you itch to get to the great outdoors
and will give you pleasant dreams." --Indianapolis
|"Indiana Outdoors is designed as a guide, a how-to-do-it-better
piece of advice if you hunt, fish, go searching for mushrooms, or want
to cook what you find in Indiana. . . . It's worth the reading, whether
you like to fish or hunt or not."
