Synopsis: Nash Buckingham was perhaps the most famous author of sporting tales in the first half of the 20th century. This collection of eight stories first published in Field and Stream , Recreation , and Outdoor Life was originally published by The Derrydale Press in 1934. Buckingham's ability to evoke the golden age of wild fowling along the Mississippi flyway from the 1890s to the 1940s is unparalleled. Pull up your favorite chair in front of a fire and get ready to relive some of the best hunting stories ever told.
About the Author: Nash Buckingham served for four years (1928-1932) as Executive Secretary of the American Wild Fowlers, a national group, in Washington, DC. He has been called the greatest outdoor writer of the 20th century. His stories are told firsthand in "Ole Southern dialect." His numerous experiences come from the heart of the Mississippi Flyway, the Gold Age of wild fowling from the 1890s to 1940s.
