East of the Slash is a collection of stories that chronicle one of the south's earliest turkey-hunting clubs-the OK Hunting Club. The Ok Hunting Club was founded in a region that was one of the few where the turkey was plentiful in an era when the wild turkey bordered on extinction in most areas of the United States. Blending humor with nostalgia, the author transports the reader from the origins of the unique hunting club itself to tales of legendary turkeys and the hunters who pursued them there. The author, whose father was one of the hunting club's founders, offers 25 captivating tales, all true, of some of the most colorful hunters and wild birds ever seen. Though not a textbook on how to hunt the wild turkey, the book shares with the reader many of the author's observations and his insight on the sport gleaned from a lifetime of pursuing the world's most extraordinary game animal.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"After considering for two minutes every imaginable scenario that would explain the turkey's disappearance, he panned his gaze slowly to the left, then to the right, reassuring himself each time that there was absolutely no possible way that the turkey could escape from either end of the log, without being fully visible. Just as the agonizing situation was about to get the better of both his patience and his muscle endurance, he beheld a wattle-enshrouded head with a circumference as large as his shin suddenly pop like a submarine periscope up from behind the log."

Review:

"The sort of tales which are shared around campfires and over predawn cups of coffee a thousand times each spring. Even those who do not aspire to holding a library of turkey tomes should acquire the book and read it, assuring themselves of a few happy hours of nostalgic pleasure." -- Jim Casada, Turkey Call Magazine, July/August, 1997
