Description: While recounting highlights of one of his summer vacations, the author gives hints on how you can make the most of yours. Go with some purpose, he urges, to visit some particular spot, see some bird, find some flower, or catch some fish! If you are short on ideas, chapters on Things to See, Things to Do, and Things to Hear are chock-full of enticing suggestions of what to focus on during your tramps in fields and woods. A clarion call to venture outside in summer with all your senses alert, wherever you go.
