When Leigh Perkins purchased The Orvis Company in 1965, annual sales were £500,000. Today, the company is a £200 million-a-year business. A Sportsman's Life is the story of that amazing journey. But it is also a wonderfully entertaining look at the entrepreneurial spirit and charismatic personality of a man who defines the Orvis lifestyle to its core. This autobiography, written by Leigh along with author Geoffrey Norman, is a remarkably frank, often funny, occasionally philosophical, and anecdotal-laden story of an incredible man and the success he achieved by combining his passion for the sporting life with his talent for business. A Sportsman's Life has met with critical acclaim in the New York Times, and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today; it is truly a great read.
