BeschreibungLong out of print, "Out Ho"me is the first published collection of naturalist and conservationist John Madson's essays. Written between 1961 and 1977 for such venues as "Outdoor Life," "Sports Afield," "Audubon," and "Guns and Ammo," the twenty-one essays and one poem in this classic volume focus on game and nongame animals and the people who love them and their outdoor world. Madson writes of hunting and wildlife management, the tricks of whitetail and cottontail, the bewildering interactions of pheasants with their harsh winter world, the cliff-nesting geese of the Missouri River, biscuits and gravy and stories shared around campfires with friends and family, and the great seasonal migrations of geese and cranes.
PortraitIowa native John Madson (1923-1995) is considered the father of the modern prairie restoration movement; his books include Where the Sky Began (IOWA reprint, 2004), Stories from under the Sky (IOWA reprint, 2007), Up on the River, and Tallgrass Prairie. He wrote extensively on natural history and resource conservation for Audubon, Smithsonian, and National Geographic, among many others. Editor Michael McIntosh, one of the nation's foremost experts on shotguns, has written a short introduction to this first paperback edition of these ageless wilderness tales.
