Muskrat for Supper inspires young people to explore nature's life cycles and understand the concept of the circle of life, as told through the tale of a family that embarks on a hunting and trapping adventure. It is an endearing story that weaves together such themes as sustainable living, our natural environment, and living closer to nature. The first book for children by this acclaimed storyteller and author, Muskrat for Supper includes questions young people have asked Kenny Salwey about his lifestyle as a river rat living off the land. The story will be illustrated with black-and-white photographs as well as nonfiction material to supplement the text.

Kenny Salwey is the last of a breed of men whose lifestyle has all but disappeared in this fast-paced, high-tech digital world. For thirty years, this weathered woodsman eked out a living on the Mississippi River running a trapline, hiring out as a river guide, digging and selling roots and herbs, and eating the food he hunted and fished. Today Salwey is a master storyteller, environmental educator, keynote speaker, nature writer, and advocate for the Upper Mississippi River. He has presented his true-life adventures and words of natural world wisdom to both adult and young audiences across the upper Midwest. By sharing his hard-learned experiences, his respect for the Mississippi River, and his love of the natural world, Salwey hopes to inspire his audiences to protect this precious and fragile ecosystem.

About the Author:

Kenny Salwey is the last of a breed of men whose lifestyle has all but disappeared in this fast-paced, high-tech digital world. He earned a tough living with the land, close to Nature and the Mississippi River and using only his native wit. For 30 years, this weathered woodsman eked out a living running a trapline, hiring out as a river guide, digging and selling roots and herbs, and eating the food he hunted and fished. Today, Salwey is a master storyteller, environmental educator, keynote speaker, nature writer, and advocate for the Upper Mississippi River. He has presented his true-life adventures and words of natural world wisdom to adult and young adult audiences across the upper Midwest. By sharing his hard learned experiences, his respect for the Mississippi River, and his love of the natural world, Salwey hopes to inspire his audiences to protect this precious and fragile ecosystem.

Review:

"This is a book I highly recommend for a reader of almost any age. It's small enough to fit into a purse or a jacket pocket – and a page or two will lessen the frustrations most of us experience when we have to wait in line, for a real live person to actually pick up the phone – or during an airport delay." —Agri-View

"With gentle common sense and a self-taught naturalist's eye toward preservation and sustainability, Salwey weaves a semi-fictional story in with his own exciting, true-life tales about living in the Mississippi backwaters. Salwey, also known as The Last River Rat, romanticizes his life but includes plenty of honesty: it's not easy to share space with a snake or to pull yourself out of broken ice, but the rewards and the beauty outweigh those small inconveniences." —Terri Schlichenmeyer
