I've seen this book in NC Wildlife magazine and it looked interesting, but something about the cover prevented me from purchasing it. The other day I was browsing in a used book store and came across a Hard cover copy in near mint condition for only $4.50!

Jim was the editor of NC Wildlife for a long time and these 50 short essays were published over a 17 year period. I'm really enjoying reading it and find it interesting how much some things have changed over time and how little many other things have not.

I believe that this book in now available in paperback only for $15.

but you can get a deal on a used one http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0807822345/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&qid=1303921271&sr=8-1&condition=used

Jim Dean is an excellent and in my opinion, underrated writer.  As a boy, I looked forward to his articles in Wildlife in North Carolna.  I am glad that his essays are in book form.  I believe he has another book published, "The Secret Lives of Fisherman."  I look forward to reading those stories as well.

Never read anything of his but love to fish the "Jim Dean hole" on the SoHo. I have heard a few people call it that anyway.
