This is a signed book by the author!
"Part lessons from the field and part wisdom from the vantage point of a psychologist, Excellent Joy is a celebration of life through observations of important and subtle nuances about agriculture and its related endeavors: fishing and hunting. It also explains the psychology of why people engage in these aspirations and recreations.
Nicely Stored in our genetic material is information that has survival value for the human species: attractions to fishing, farming, hunting, and managing these basic urges most productively. After all, those who lacked these adaptations succumbed in the competition for life. This book honors endeavors that yield food, clothing and shelter, as well as the excellent joy of the pursuits, through the unique insights of a farmer/psychologist who has devoted his life to improving the understanding of the behavior of farm people. The author indulges readers with ample humor and wonderful exuberance in his explanations and stories.
