The Total Outdoorsman Manual

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.
