Synopsis:
A Million Wings takes readers inside the Mississippi Flyway’s finest duck
hunting clubs. From some of the country’s most historic properties in the St.
Louis area to the duck havens of the Delta, all the way down to the stunning
scenery of coastal south Louisiana, this book is a true testament to the beauty
of the sporting South. Featuring a foreword by United States Ryder Cup team
captain Davis Love III, A Million Wings provides an insider’s look into the
unique culture of the South’s private hunting clubs and lodges. The tradition
and camaraderie of these famed clubs and their owners are made evident
through Wild Abundance Publishing’s signature combination of storytelling
and photography that is compelling to anyone with an appreciation for the
outdoors and all that it inspires.

Review:
“The stunning photographs and the heartfelt stories in A Million Wings
inspire people. While everybody will not play golf at Augusta National
or play in the U.S. Open, they watch. They watch and it inspires them to
play the game and to play the game better. In golf, the big clubs and the
professional game is a small part of the whole story, but it is what motivates
people to grow the game. Like Augusta National, the private retreats
featured on these pages may seem like the ultimate hunting experience.
But these are the places that do the work to keep duck hunting alive and
inspire people to gain a better understanding of the sport. They motivate
the rest of us, they are the ones who are growing the sport and I, for one,
say, ‘Thanks a million.’”
Davis Love III , winner of 20 PGA events, six time Ryder Cup competitor
and captain of Team USA at Ryder Cup 2012.

“My first duck hunt was at my family’s place in South Carolina. I didn’t
know anything about it, but I’d inherited a double barrel shotgun from my
grandfather. The first time I went duck hunting, I was just so amazed by it
all. I went back to college in Colorado and my roommate was a big duck
hunter in Pennsylvania. We went down in the San Luis Valley in Colorado
where they had great artesian wells that would stay open in the cold winter
and I just became addicted. It must have been in my DNA. I loved it. I love
the outdoors. I love big, wild places .”
Jim Kennedy , chairman of Cox Enterprises; trustee for Wetlands America
Trust and previously the organization’s president; past board member of
Ducks Unlimited and Nature Conservancy; recipient of the Ducks Unlimited
2012 Conservation Private Citizen Award; endowed a chair in Waterfowl
and Wetlands Conservation in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and
Aquaculture in the College of Forest Resources at Mississippi State University.

“The camaraderie and collegiality you get in duck hunting is totally different
from other hunting because you’re together and form a bond of shared
experience. You may be an ambassador or a governor. But when you duck
hunt, you can always be a 17-year-old.”
Haley Barbour , former Mississippi governor and frequent guest of John
Palmer at Go Away Lodge near Jackson, Mississippi. Palmer served as U.S.
Ambassador to Portugal from 2001 to 2004.
