Description
For nearly a decade, Bill Heavey, an outdoorsman marooned in suburbia, has written the Sportsman’s Life” column on the back page ofField & 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 readersone 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 2008and 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 pathosand wide-ranging outdoor enthusiasms that run the gamut from elite to ordinaryinto a poignant and potent cocktail. Funny, warmhearted, and supremely entertaining, this book is an uproarious addition to the literature of the outdoors.
