In Backtrack, former naval officer, avid outdoorsman, sportsman, editor, and award-winning journal- ist V. Paul Reynolds journeys back along the path of his life to revisit and share with readers many of his outdoor experiences. Reynolds was introduced to the outdoors by his father, Harvard Reynolds, in the 1940s. Harvard took his son to many of his own favorite hunt- ing and fishing spots, helping give birth to his son's lifelong love affair with the outdoors. Later, Harvard eventually took his son to his first smoke-filled hunting camp, where amber liquid flowed and profanity filled the room. Reynolds would soon understood how the out- doors could bestow both the love of nature and the joy of friendship. Reynolds' journey has since car- ried him from the brooks of Maine to hunting grounds across North America, as well as indoors to the hallways of Augusta, where he worked for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, and the editorial offices of the Northwoods Sporting Journal where he serves editor and publisher. Reynolds' life has been a great outdoor adventure; now the eloquent and thoughtful writer brings readers along on the trail to skin a deer in the field, fish with his dad, and hunt with his wife, Diane, herself a dedicated outdoorswoman.
