|About the Book|
Join the author David Adam Atwell on his adventures high up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia as he hikes, camps, and learns to shoot, fish, and hunt. Laugh at his familys antics and hold your breath in anticipation of success or defeat. Visit a hunting cabin, get lost in the woods, go fishing up Cripple Creek, and learn to make moonshine. Journey on a safari across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe and back again while experiencing a field training exercise with the U.S. Army and hiking the German and Austrian Alps. Suffer through a blizzard in June and climb the highest mountain in Germany, the Zugspitze! Dont be afraid to get wet while canoeing down Bull Run through the Manassas Battlefield or sailing on the Potomac River. Set some crab pots to catch Blue Crabs from the Chesapeake Bay and take a trip out west with Lewis and Clark to learn about celestial and land navigation. Appalachian Safari - A Virginia Mountain Mans Wild Stories has an adventure for everyone- whether youre interested in a simple summer hike along the New River, trout fishing, or a winter big game buffalo hunt in North Dakota.
