Description - Gordon MacQuarrie by Keith Crowley

Although his typewriter has been silent for nearly fifty years, Gordon MacQuarrie's words continue to inspire generations of hunting and fishing enthusiasts. Through his "Stories of the Old Duck Hunters," MacQuarrie captured the intangible, emotional qualities of the outdoor life in a way that made him unique among his peers. This first full-length biography explores the relationships he treasured; his coming of age during Theodore Roosevelt's conservation movement; his rise to prominence as the first professional outdoor writer in America; and his life as journalist, storyteller, husband, father, outdoorsman, and conservationist. Includes rarely seen photographs and a comprehensive timeline of his writings.
