Gone for the Day
In the preface, Ned Smith writes “‘Gone for the Day’ began as a diary written in the mountains and along the rivers of my native Pennsylvania. When it first appeared in print as a series of monthly articles in “Game News”, my ultimate hope was that it prove to be entertaining reading.” At a later time Smith began to hope that “it would reveal an exciting new outlet for those who find civilization’s artificial environment unfulfilling. I hoped it would prove that the natural world at one’s doorstep can be as exciting as Yellowstone National Park or the Everglades. And most of all I hoped that it would motivate readers everywhere to pull on a pair of old shoes and go see for themselves the things that make a naturalist’s life so endlessly fascinating.”
