Synopsis

Craig Heimbuch, urban dad, journalist, and editor-in-chief of manofthehouse.com offers readers a humorous exploration of hunting culture in And Now We Shall Do Manly Things. Outdoors enthusiasts, fans of A.J. Jacobs's The Know-It-All and the Bill Bryson classic, A Walk in the Woods will appreciate Heimbuch's aspirations to better understand the men in his family by immersing himself for one year in the manly art of hunting. A book that explores with great wit and open-hearted appreciation the ideal of traditional masculinity, And Now We Shall Do Manly Things demonstrates that it is possible to be both a hunter and a modern American man.

Some of the writing seemed forced and some of the segments seem to be padded in order to fill out the book (a three page description of a meal, for example).

Mr. Heimbuch looks at the individuals who own guns, the scary ones, the conspiracy theorists, those who live on the fringes of society, but he also looks at the average hunter (who are most of the folks) who happen to enjoy the sport or simply hunt for food.
