Archibald Rutledge (1883–1973) ranks as one of America's best-loved outdoor writers. In his works of short prose, he possessed a rare affinity for capuring the joys of hunting, the beauty of the outdoors, and the camaraderie at the heart of the sporting experience. As a son of the southern soil, Rutledge wrote with affection about the virtues the regional traditionally has prized — honor, love of one's family, self-respect, and honesty.
Hunting & Home in the Southern Heartland is the first in a trilogy ofbooks that once again makes Rutledge's finest works available to the reading public. Jim Casada, a long-time student and admirer of Rutledge, gathers thirty-five stories that represent Rutledge at his best. Through this volume, present-day outdoor enthusiasts can partake of the pleasure that the masterful storyteller shared with legions of admirers during his lifetime.
