I come from a big family that all liked to camp together which made our camps a bit like a large compound. Or a circled up tent train.
There was lots of watchful Parents, Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles and a big passel of kids that ran free during the day and at night, everyone would settle in around a huge bonfire where the memories and stories of the adults were shared.
As a kid I would sit mesmerized and listen to the stories my elders would recant and I can remember asking my Dad on several occasions, “Did that really happen?” to which he’d usually reply “A good part of it…”
I still love a good campfire story and every once in awhile I’ll come across a writer who can capture via the written word the type of stories I grew up listening to. Today I wanted to share a fellow Outdoor Blogger/Author that has done just that.
Quill Gordon has already been entertaining us all with his outstanding writing on the blog:
The View from Fish in a Barrel Pond
And now his short stories can be found on Amazon and downloaded to your favorite digital reading device.
I bought all three and my guess is there is some tall tales, folklore, fiction and truth behind these stories about the Neverwas Nonesuch Angling Society. These stories are all entertaining, humorous and just a bit outrageous. Just as any campfire story should be…
Well done Quill Gordon!!
