Denver, CO, and Thornton, CA – In this age of TVs, DVDs, iPods and video games, where's the lover of a good yarn to turn for the artfully crafted tall tale? Don E. Webster brings back the lost art of outdoor storytelling in his book Bury Me In My Waders: An Old Duck Hunter Recalls His Fowl Past, published by Outskirts Press. The book offers hunters, other lovers of the wild and even non-hunters a fresh, new look at a truly enjoyable reading experience, and gets readers back to nature with charm, humor and a connection to the natural world that's been dormant for decades.
It's long been thought that outdoor storytelling had gone the way of the passenger pigeon and
the great auk. Hunters, fishermen and other lovers of the outdoors are unable to connect with the outdoors in a way that has real, lasting value. As a result, the overall quality of the outdoor experience has been diminished.
“Historically, storytelling by way of the written word has afforded the opportunity to savor those experiences in ways that stand the test of time and cannot be duplicated. Sportsmen and sportswomen know this,” Webster said.
“Outdoor blogs and commentaries are continually flooded with complaints about the dearth of artfully-told, outdoor tales. Those who remember the great outdoor writers of the past return time and again to their stories. Writers such as Corey Ford, Robert Ruark, and Ernest Hemingway touched the heart and memory in ways that nothing else can.”
