Betsy and I were in the woods alone for the first time in over two years, slipping along from tree to tree. We were mainly enjoying being outside, though I had my 30.06 along.

I suspect that the average New York or California gun-control advocate simply can't imagine taking one's significant other out for a walk in the woods and just casually taking the 30.06 along. I just thought it was a fun excerpt that shows a different way of thinking between those who like guns and those who hate them.
Neill is the author of a number of other books, including "How to Lose Your Farm in 10 Easy Lessons," which is a good way to understand some of the changes that took place in agriculture during the 1970s and '80s.
