This brilliant collection of stories explores people as much as it explores the author’s beloved turkey hunting. From his impatient prepubescent daughter to the southern belle to the elderly colonel spinning tales, Tom Kelly has hunted with all sorts of memorable southern characters, and they are the heart of his new book.
Kelly’s twenty-two articles, all connected to his passion for turkey hunting, become his humorous and wonderful chronicle of the traditional ways of life in the South as it slowly becomes more modern. Better on a Rising Tide is a treasure to all those sportsmen who enjoyed Tom Kelly’s delicious Tenth Legion – but also anyone who values shrewd and perceptive writing about rural folk.
