Good Old Books: Adventures and Misadventures with Rod and Gun

"My name isn't well known, such as Winston Churchill, Dick Nixon, or many others. So the name is not of particular significance, but the era and the unusual and interesting happenings gleaned over a sixty-year span, when outdoor activity was unsurpassed, may be of interest.

"If we don't reduce events of the "good old days" to print they will soon be forgotten; and it must be that future generations will be more interested in this lifetime.

"It is with this in mind I write, not Dave Gardner's experience, but about a rich period in time for the outdoorsman that otherwise will be forgotten."
