"Muskrat..." is an enjoyable little book that boils down Kenny Salwey's passion for the outdoors and his musings on the place of Nature in our modern lives.

I received this book for free through Goodreads first reads.

This was just OK for me. I had a tough time enjoying Salwey's writing style. But, before I had a chance to read it, I loaned it to a friend.

So, it just goes to show how ratings are all a matter of opinion!

I'm going to pass my copy along to the troop so it can be further enjoyed...
