The Total Outdoorsman Manual, a 2011 collection of published how-to tips and personal essays gleaned from my first 10 years as editor-at-large for Field & Stream, has sold nearly 300,000 copies. Published in both hardback and paperback, it has been translated into French, Polish, and Canadian editions. Crazy.
I’ve had numerous essays and stories republished in “best of’ anthologies, including:
Inside the Ropes: Sportswriters Get Their Game On
Cornbread Nation: The Best of Southern Food Writing
Guys Read: True Stories
Men’s Journal: The Great Life
Field & Stream’s World’s Best Hunting Stories
Field & Stream’s World’s Best Fishing Stories
Garden & Gun The Southerner’s Handbook
Garden & Gun Good Dogs
Chicken Soup for the Nature Lover’s Soul

I’ve written travel chapters for a number of Fodor’s and Discovery/Travel Channel travel guides.
