Tightly written, which saved this from being another "NW locavore parenting" memoir. The Japanese culture of Bainbridge was deftly handled. As a Seattle resident, I thought Dylan laid on the rural island vibe a bit thickly in parts, given it's suburban vibe. ( )

CLOSER TO THE GROUND by Dylan Tomine is a wonderful memoir. It is written with depth,description and heart. "An outdoor family's year on the water,int he woods and at the table." Mr. Tomine gave up his career to show his children his love of hunting,fishing,humor,adventure,and eating. His love of the sea,nature,and woods shows through on every page. A compelling and complex tale of a family through the seasons.A must for fathers,grandfathers and mother alike,who enjoy hunting,fishing and the great outdoors and would share their love of nature with their loved ones. Written from the heart for all of us to enjoy. A great story to share.Received for an honest review from the author/publisher.Details can be found at the author's website,Patagonia Books and My Book Addiction and More.
