CLASSIC CARMICHEL
Stories from the Field
by Jim Carmichel

2015 Columbia, 363pp, color and B&W photos, 9x10.5, hardcover, dj
ISBN: 978-1-935342-12-0

Classic Carmichael - Stories from the Field is an amazing compilation of some of Jim Carmichael's best articles and stories. The author was for decades the field editor for Outdoor Life, and while many of the stories found in this book were first published in that magazine, they are now offered here in a much expanded versions—with many of the original images included.

These riveting tales include the following: the monster "dead" crocodile that came back to life twice and almost killed him on Zimbabwe's "river of death"; the dangerous three-mile-high hunt in the Andes of Peru for taruca where he ended up without a rifle; the drama and intrigue of a $100,000 Russian stag hunt complete with a Moscow hotel room full of rubles; an Alaskan moose hunt in the middle of Typhoon Oscar; a stalk for trophy deer in Arizona's legendary "strip"; and many more fabulous sagas. It also contains a few interesting chapters on how he did his job: answering hundreds of letters a month from readers, testing guns, and making it from one assignment to the next.

Maybe the best part is that Jim never writes about his adventures without including us in his hunting parties. He takes us with him wherever he goes, and we are as scared, jubilant, exhausted, terrified, and enlightened as he is—before, during, and after these expeditions.

Classic Carmichael - Stories from the Field is a book that will transport you back to the time of the Golden Age of hunting, offering you the privilege of being next to the shooting world's last Renaissance Man . . . whether he is on assignment in the brush, bush, or bench. This book is, simply, a must read!
