Product Details
By Keith Crowley
Foreword by Michael McIntosh


Re-release of a Society Press Classic!

Through his "Stories of the Old Duck Hunters," most of which are still in print, MacQuarrie captured the intangible, emotional qualities of the outdoor life in a way that made him unique among his peers. As a result, his audience and his legend continue to grow.

Gordon MacQuarrie: The Story of an Old Duck Hunter is the first full-length biography of this literary legend. It explores the relationships he nurtured and treasured; records his coming of age during Theodore Roosevelt's Conservation Movement; documents his rise to national prominence as the first full-time, professional outdoor writer in America; and follows his life as journalist, storyteller, husband, father, outdoorsman, and conservationist.

Keith Crowley has spent many years tramping the woods and waters of northwest Wisconsin. His freelance writing has appeared in such publications as "Sporting Classics," "Wisconsin Outdoor Journal," "Wisconsin Sportsman," "Minnesota Sportsman," "Rocky Mountain Game and Fish," and "Florida Game and Fish." He resides in Hudson, Wisconsin with his wife and sons, but spends an inordinate amount of time at his retreat on the Eau Claire lakes.
