Regional/Nature A handsomely illustrated account, now in paperback for the first time. Florence Page Jaques and her husband, Francis Lee Jaques, who illustrates this classic with beautiful black-and-white nature drawings, experience an unusually thrilling winter vacation following the waterfowl migration. Beginning with a duck-hunting trip in Minnesota, Florence writes a lively and detailed account of their trip down the Mississippi flyway, through the White River bottom swamps in Arkansas, and around the Rainey Wildlife Sanctuary in the marshlands of Louisiana. "Mrs. Jaques’ text, like her observation, is artless and fresh. She observes in an instant, never coolly, and with like spontaneity sets both her observation and her reaction to it." Saturday Review "It is a hearty, outdoors book, full of wind and sky color, full of feeling for things and places." New York Herald Tribune Fesler-Lampert Minnesota Heritage Book Series Translation Inquiries: University of Minnesota Press
