Beginning of the Chapter “You Got My Attention”

“The cold salt water was up to our calves.  It was rising slowly, but rising nonetheless.  Both Dad and I had on chest waders and neither of us would have given the height of the rising water a second thought, except for the fact that, where we were standing, the water level for half a mile in every direction was neck deep.  To be exact, the two of us were shoulder to shoulder in a curtain blind behind the Outer Banks of North Carolina, in the middle of Croatan Sound.  Hunting from such a strange contraption was quite new to both of us.  The delicious mixture of danger, the adventure of the unknown, and the anticipation of my first goose hunt had me shivering.”

This hunting story, “You Got My Attention”, can be found in the book Ten Was The Deal.
