OUTDOOR YARNS & OUTRIGHT LIES
Author: Gene Hill & Steve Smith
Publisher: STACKPOLE BOOKS, Aug 2007
Gene Hill, a regular columnist for Field & Stream, teams up with Steve Smith, associated editor of Gun Dog magazine, to create a lighthearted book that shows both the humor & warmth found in outdoor activities. B&W Illus; 6x9 inches, 192 pgs.
Guaranteed to spark memories of enjoyable time spent afield, this classic collection of stories from well-loved authors Gene Hill and Steve Smith captures the essence and humor of the outdoor life. Whether they're writing about ice fishing, calling ducks, dealing with gunsmiths, or dragging the unwilling dog to the vet, these two wits are sure to entertain. And when it comes to recalling those all-too-abundant missed shots, close calls, and ones that got away, readers might just learn a thing or two about the art of "looking at the truth from a variety of angles," as Gene Hill offers "irrefutable proof that the judgment and memory of the outdoorsman improves, like a fine wine, with time."
WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
"Riotously funny . . . highly recommended." --Gun Dog magazine
"Both Gene Hill and Steve Smith possess a puckish wit and a remarkable faculty for putting it into words. . . . Just reading one of their books is as satisfying as doubling on grouse or landing a fresh-run steelhead on a 5X tippet." --Mark Dilts, The Drummer
