If You Didn't Bring Jerky, What Did I Just Eat?: Misadventures in Hunting, Fishing, and the Wilds of Suburbia
About this item
About this item
For nearly a decade, Bill Heavey, an outdoorsman marooned in suburbia, has written the "Sportsman's Life" column on the back page of Field & Stream, where he does for hunting and fishing what David Feherty does for golf and Lewis Grizzard did for the South. His work is adored by readers--one proclaims him "the greatest sportswriter who has ever walked the planet," and another recently wrote in to nominate him for president of the United States in 2008--and his peers have recognized his work with two prestigious National Magazine Award nominations. If You Didn't Bring Jerky, What Did I Just Eat? is the first collection of Heavey's sidesplitting observations on life as a hardcore (but often hapless) outdoorsman. Whether he's hunting cougars in the southwest desert, scheming to make his five-year-old daughter fall in love with fishing, or chronicling his father's slow decline through the lens of the numerous dogs he's owned over seventy-five years, Heavey is a master at blending humor and pathos--and wide-ranging outdoor enthusiasms that run the gamut from elite to ordinary--into a poignant and potent cocktail. His advice for men on how to survive a midlife crisis? Skip your birthday party to go fishing with a friend. Child care woes? Don't hire a sitter when your daughter can enjoy the fresh air and improve your hunt by learning to drive deer past your stand. Worried that Disney cartoons are giving kids a sugar-coated view of the natural world? Pop in a hunting DVD (Whitetail Madness 5 works like a charm). Funny, warmhearted, and supremely entertaining, this book is an irresistible addition to the literature of the outdoors.
