Readers of the Indianapolis Star have enjoyed Bill Scifres's column "Lines and Shots" for over 37 years. The premier outdoor writer in Indiana, Bill is also a born storyteller. This collection gathers some of his best accounts of a lifetime of adventure in the out-of-doors. From The Great Turtle Adventure to the discovery that Santa Claus was really a mink, Bill's message is the same: Nature is full of wonderment and pleasure and there is always something enjoyable to do outdoors, no matter the season. The good old days are alive and well in Indiana.
