About The Book

Whether it’s hunting, fishing, or simply shooting, the love and thrill of the outdoors will always remain.

In Tales of Woods and Waters, well-known outdoor editor Vin T. Sparano has collected thirty-seven of the greatest, most enjoyable, and most well-written outdoors stories to have been published. Experience the tension of hunting in the jungles of Tanzania in Jim Carmichael’s “Kill the Leopard,” the joys of your first .22 in Garth Sanders’s “My First Rifle,” the nuances of river fishing in Frank Conaway’s “Big Water, Little Men,” and the enduring challenge of turkey hunting in Charles Elliott’s “The Old Man and the Tom.” Spanning the world and its varied forms of wildlife, these stories demonstrate that no matter where one hunts, shoots, or fishes, the outdoors will always be an important place to form memories that last a lifetime.

Along with Sparano’s other collections of hunting stories, Classic Hunting Tales and The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told, also published by Skyhorse, this anthology will likely hold a special place on any outdoorsman’s shelf for years to come.
