Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Archie's Way is an inspiring tale about a very special friendship and the redemptive powers of a shared passion. After a traumatic event in midlife leads Richard Probert and his family to northern Wisconsin, he meets Archie Raasch, and together they begin a remarkable voyage of self-discovery centered on the art of working with metal and wood. In Archie, he finds an eccentric and brilliant man who not only can take a piece of cherry or steel and turn it into something beautiful and useful, but a person who has developed over the years a deep understanding of craft, creativity, and the essentials of life. With wit, candor, and eloquence, Probert paints an illuminating and touching portrait of the bonds that develop, of the thrills and frustrations of craftsmanship, and of the special life lessons and insights that both men gain from this unique relationship. The result is an affecting and poignant tale that makes Archie's Way a book to be treasured.
