Hunting from Home is the culmination of a long and thoughtful journey through the rich natural landscape of the southern Appalachians. A vivid rendering of the four seasons on a Shenandoah Valley farm and in the Virginia mountains. Christopher Camuto has been praised for writing "with the clear-sightedness and imaginative reachboth inward and outwardof a poet" (Verlyn Klinkenborg). In Hunting from Home, Camuto takes the reader through a year of intense experiences: hunting grouse with his setter through snowbound forests in winter; wading trout streams in spring; closely observing birds and wildlife through summer; exploring the backcountry, cutting wood, and hunting deer in autumn. He takes seriouslyand joyously Thoreau's injunction to practice "the discipline of looking always at what is to be seen." Camuto writes incisively about the hunter's paradoxical love of the game he pursues; but he also hunts in the broadest sense possible, searching out and witnessing the life of the things he lovesbrook trout and black bear, hawks and warblerswith the hope of sharing the pleasures and preoccupations of a "border life" lived, with deep satisfaction, in the shadow of the Blue Ridge. 4 b/w illustrations.

The Blue Ridge is of the Western genre which starts in the late eighteen hundreds in Texas and moves to Colorado. The Blue Ridge is on the northern side of the canyon carved by the Colorado River as it runs toward Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The story of the Buhler family and its feud with the Toms family runs throughout the story. After David Buhler dies his widow, Ruth, marries Dan Toms. After the first year of marriage Dan begins abusing Ruth and her two sons, Brett and Barney. The abuse reaches a point where Dan Toms beats Ruth so badly that the younger boy, Barney, puts a butcher knife into Dan killing him almost instantly. The older boy Brett buries Dan with all his belongings and no one else knows what has happened to Dan as Ruth is unconscious.

Marshal, meets Ruth as she and the boys put their farm up for sale. The story moves at a rapid pace and has several romances laced through the story giving it spice. The five Toms brothers add excitement as does the goldmine adventures that both the Buhler/Mason and Toms family encounter.

This book is about Jorge Frias, a Mexican from the Yucatan Peninsula. For almost twenty years he lived and worked in the United States without proper papers and was, therefore, an illegal alien. After being caught, he was allowed to voluntarily depart our country a couple of years ago. This is a story of how he managed to gain entry to this country illegally on many occasions, why he did it and what he did while here. In writing the book my intention was, in large part, to shed some light on the immigration issue, since it is a topic being hotly debated in Congress and across the country at the present time. In doing so, I also address U.S.-Mexican relations over the years and Jorges heritage. He is a Mestizo, which means he has the blood of the Spanish, the Mayans and other indigenous peoples of Mexico in him. He now lives in Playa del Carmen and takes tourists on guided tours of Mayan temples, among other things. He is also a poet.
