    Need to find a copy of the book- it was a treat to read this excerpt.

    We use to live on what was then the rice producing region immediately west of Houston, Texas. Very little rice there now as it is apparently more profitable to grow subdivisions than it is rice. With nothing to feed on, the geese have quit coming. Seldom see more than a few dozen at a time anymore.

    Regardless, every fall it was an absolute magnet for tens of thousands of ducks and geese. More geese than ducks, but there were still plenty of both. Bishop Kline captures the beauty of living near where these migratory fowl are feeding and roosting.

    At the time I took their presence for granted, but I’d give anything to go back 20 to 25 years in time and stand outside the farmhouse while a dozen or more Snow, Blue or White Fronted geese cupped their wings and soared in right overhead to join the hundreds, if not thousands, of others that were feeding maybe a hundred yards away. Nothing quite like it…

    Hi ann, Oldkat, thanks for sharing. Sounds amazing. I do like this piece too. DK is good at evoking a certain mood in his books, and I think this is a characteristic excerpt.

    I have read both of the books by this man and they are fantastic. I very highly recommend them.
