BLAST FROM THE PAST

Field and Stream - - FIRST SHOT -

I haven’t seen a copy of FIELD & STREAM in a very long time, but as I was sit­ting at the doc­tor’s of­fice, there it was—with knives all over the cover (The Edge Is­sue, April– May 2018). My doc­tor let me steal the mag­a­zine, so I took it home and re­dis­cov­ered the FIELD & STREAM of my child­hood. I don’t fish or hunt, but I’ve en­joyed the out­doors all my life. My sis­ters read Sev­en­teen; I read FIELD & STREAM. They went to the prom; I went hik­ing.

Now I’m 67 years old, and one of my fa­vorite ar­ti­cles in this is­sue was “The Grad­u­ate” by T. Ed­ward Nick­ens (To­tal Outdoorsman). These are two very lucky men: the one who raised a good man, and the other who let him. And the very best ar­ti­cle was Bill Heavey’s heart­break­ing, gen­er­ous, coura­geous es­say on de­pres­sion (A Sports­man’s Life). Thanks for a great mag­a­zine. Mag­gie Nel­son, via email
