ABOUT THE AUTHOR Fielding Lewis's love of hunting began at the age of six when his grandmother gave him his first BB gun. He spent much of his teen years hunting and observing wildlife and nature with his father. After marrying and returning from the air force, he worked as a mill lumber inspector and plant operator. He purchased a lumberyard that he operated for thirteen years. After selling the lumberyard, he became the editor of a small weekly newspaper in Franklin, Louisiana. His ability to express himself in the written word blossomed into this, his first book, a result of ten years of note- taking.
