One Last Cast is a collection of soul-touching and evocative stories about author and outdoor enthusiast Bruce Masterman's experiences in wild places and with wild critters.
Award-winning Alberta writer, journalist and storyteller Bruce Masterman has been a passionate outdoors enthusiast for more than five decades and has explored Alberta's natural world while fishing, hiking, hunting, snowshoeing, camping or just sitting on an old weathered stump watching the river flow. One Last Cast is a compilation of his writings, some never before published, others drawn from newspapers, magazines and books to which Bruce has contributed. The stories are about place and landscape, intertwined with the rich experiences and people the author encountered along the way.
One Last Cast is a literary journey that speaks to outdoor aficionados of all stripes – anglers, hunters, hikers, wildlife watchers, snowshoers, anybody who enjoys and takes comfort in being involved in nature, whether in an urban park or deep in the wilderness or even while dreaming about it from the comfort of an armchair.
