Nash Buckingham (1880-1971) was truly something special, a shooting man's man, a birdhunter to his fingertips, and quite possibly the finest writer America ever produced on these and related subjects. A Tennessean who started gunning in an era of unlimited bags but helped to found the modern conservation movement, Nash in many ways epitomized his time and place, and towered above most of his contemporaries. Other writers followed the fashion of seasoning their pontifications with a bit of dialect; Nash juxtaposed his genuinely authoritative views with richly vernacular anecdotes that rang true and often touched the heart. Others shot well; but Nash was superb, one of the finest wing shots of his generation. Others knew bird dogs; but it was Nash who was invited, time and again, to judge the Nationals at Grand Junction. In nine published books and almost nine score of articles, Nash Buckingham revealed if not created the magical world he inhabited, a world of high ducks and large coveys, staunch dogs and crack shots, and vast charm, sentiment and humor. Now the very best of these marvelous stories and articles have been selected, annotated and edited with affectionate discernment by George Bird Evans, himself a gunner-writer and friend of Nash's. From conversations with men who gunned with Nash during the last half of his eighty-year shooting career and from previously unpublished letters, Evans has distilled memories still warm and alive, and has added his own sympathetic and perceptive 'Portrait of Nash' reviewing his friend's entire career..
