Muskrat for Supper: Exploring the Natural World with the Last River Rat
Join a family as they visit an old friend—one of the last river rats—and embark on a lifetime adventure exploring nature's wonders and the circle of life.

As he looks out over the wetlands, there are no human sounds to interfere with the chirping of birds, the rustling of leaves, and the rippling of the water. The cool autumn air and the golden light of the shortening days make him wistful, and his mind turns to days gone by—being a kid, outdoor adventures, growing up, watching the world change around him. He smiles, remembering it all and mulling over which stories he'll tell.
A car appears around the bend, and the woodsman greets his visitors with a grin. They are adults now, with children of their own slamming the car doors, but in their faces he still sees them as kids.
