Textul de pe ultima copertă

"The stunning photographs and the heartfelt stories in "A Million Wings"
inspire people. While everybody will not play golf at Augusta National
or play in the U.S. Open, they watch. They watch and it inspires them to
play the game and to play the game better. In golf, the big clubs and the
professional game is a small part of the whole story, but it is what motivates
people to grow the game. Like Augusta National, the private retreats
featured on these pages may seem like the ultimate hunting experience.
But these are the places that do the work to keep duck hunting alive and
inspire people to gain a better understanding of the sport. They motivate
the rest of us, they are the ones who are growing the sport and I, for one,
say, 'Thanks a million.'"
- Davis Love III," winner of 20 PGA events, six time Ryder Cup competitor"
"and captain of Team USA at Ryder Cup 2012."
"My first duck hunt was at my family's place in South Carolina. I didn't
know anything about it, but I'd inherited a double barrel shotgun from my
grandfather. The first time I went duck hunting, I was just so amazed by it
all. I went back to college in Colorado and my roommate was a big duck
hunter in Pennsylvania. We went down in the San Luis Valley in Colorado
where they had great artesian wells that would stay open in the cold winter
and I just became addicted. It must have been in my DNA. I loved it. I love
the outdoors. I love big, wild places."""

"The camaraderie and collegiality you get in duck hunting is totally different
from other hunting because you're together and form a bond of shared
experience. You may be an ambassador or a governor. But when you duck
hunt, you can always be a 17-year-old."

""The duck clubs of the Mississippi Flyway are legendary for both their hunting and their history. In the new book "A Million Wings" (Wild Abundance), Susan Schadt and photographer Lisa Buser tell their stories through interviews with members, club lore, and gorgeous images. Join in the morning high jinks at Greasy Slough, near Jonesboro, Arkansas, see the sun rise at Fighting Bayou, outside Ruleville, Mississippi, and learn how Anderson's Hole, at St. Charles, Missouri's Dardenne, got its name. Hint: It's not a good idea to complain too much at duck camp." "-Garden & Gun "magazine
