WILL TOM GET EVEN WITH THOSE OLD GOBBLERS!
In ''Payback'' these trails of Tom's life combine to offer several new perspectives on such topics as: the blight and possible re-incarnation of the great American Chestnut tree; the value of maps in capturing the topical personality of hunting land; the lumber industry's dynamic locational shift from the Great Lakes region to the South around 1900 and the mystery/facts about 'heart pine'. Theories are brought, about the historical Native American's land usage.
And the wild turkey - thoughts on decoying, 'mixed' hunts, becoming an amateur turkey guide, letters sent to turkey enthusiasts of Tom's acquaintance, and finally, in Chapter 8, 'Percentages' - the details of Tom's 2010 spring season that began in a glory of gobbles and feathers flying, on day one, that was not again captured throughout the season. Don't miss Tom's tale of this perceived ''Payback'' in season 2010, for his flurry of home runs in season 2009. Hardcover. Signed by author. 207 pages.
