An aging trapper in the North Woods of Maine needs help on his trapline. The rural community is apprehensive when he chooses a quiet stranger from Kentucky who has been to prison. The Old Man is convinced of Bob Baker's strong character despite his rumored past. The two men become fast companions. What brutal circumstances led to a quality man doing prison time? As the seasons change in the splendid North Woods of Maine, so too do the seasons of life pass for these personal characters. Bob Baker must use his common man, outdoor skills to navigate the currents of his past and the realities of the present moment. The importance of family bonds and human decency ring through. Join their adventures as they take on the elements, rogue beekeepers, behaviorally challenged kids, and life's hardships. Bob Baker is an unforgettable tale of second chances, family bonds, healthy eating, human compassion, and respect for nature. As the characters interact, there are moments of enjoyment, friendship, and sadness- ultimately positive and uplifting. Ordinary people doing the best they can with the circumstances at hand.
