The Lost Classics
By Robert Ruark
These are the magazine stories that Robert Ruark wrote in the 1950s and 1960s—stories that made Robert Ruark a household name. Carefully selected from his writings, some of these stories will make you laugh and some will make you feel sad. Ruark was one of America’s most enduring writers whose hunting and outdoor stories are timeless. His work transcends generations, and his words delight readers regardless of age. The Lost Classics will have you reminisce of bygone days while you read about “The Old Man and the Boy,” “Stories from Down Home,” “The Boy Expands his Horizons,” and “Papa Hemingway.” The final section of this delightful book includes stories that Ruark wrote about himself and is entitled, “Ruark on Ruark.” All told, there are twenty-seven stories by the master storyteller.
