America's Greatest Game Bird
Archibald Rutledge's Turkey-Hunting Tales

Edited by Jim Casada

Captures the lure and lore of the wary creature once proposed as the U.S. national bird

During the first half of the twentieth century, Archibald Rutledge hunted wild turkeys in the woodlands surrounding his ancestral South Carolina plantation. He became wise in the ways of the wary creature and wrote prolifically about the sport.

In this collection, noted outdoor writer Jim Casada gathers thirty-four of Rutledge's finest turkey-hunting yarns. America's Greatest Game Bird joins Tales of Whitetails and Hunting & Home in the Southern Heartland to complete a trilogy of outstanding Rutledge stories.

Jim Casada, a nationally recognized authority on turkey hunting, is author of several books on the outdoors. He lives in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
