Praise
for
Steve Chappie
and
Confessions
of
an
Eco-Redneck
"Steve
Chappie teased
the first
spring belly-laugh
from
a
long brutalMontana winter.
Confessions
of
an
Eco-Redneck
demonstrates good
humor
and the wisdom to know that the modern American conserva-tion movement
is in
real danger
from
disengagement with
the
natural
world."
—Doug
Peacock,
author
of
Grizzly
Years
"Steve
Chappie's
Confessions
of
an
Eco-Redneck
made
me
laugh
and
weep
in
equal measures.
How
human!
I
only hope
these
essays—pungent, knowledgeable,
and
eminently delightful—canhelp makethehuman race stopitssilly-ass bickering."
—Robert
F.
Jones,
author
of
Tie
My
Bones
to Her
Back
and
The
Fishing Doctor
"This
red
neck
is
nodding
her
eco-head back
and
forth
saying, 'Yes!Yes! Yes!
And
I'll have whatever he's having!*
Steve
Chappie's
Confessions
of an
Eco-Redneck
is
great.
He
combines really
funny
stuff
with the prophetic and the true, thereby insuring that every
good
outdoorsman will think again. Read it."
—Rebecca
Gray;
Co-founder,
Gray's
Sporting
Journal
and
Contributing
Editor,
Sports
Afield
"With wit and insight, Steve Chappie tries to reconcile the red-neckkiller
and the
spirit
of
Thoreau that divides
the
hearts
of
American
outdoorsmen.
This
book
is
worth reading
for the
chapter
on TV
hunting
alone."
—Phil
Caputo, author
of
Equation for
Evil
and
A
Rumor
of
War
"Chappie
writes
from
the
edge—and
you
will never view sport
or
wildness
the
same
after
his
shrewd takes
on
hunting,
fly fishing the
Zambezi, Bambi, dinosaurs, ecology, marriage, grizzlies, and much"mountain mayhem." He's brilliant, irritating,anduncommonly
wise."
—Nick
Lyons,
author
of
A Fly fisher's
World
"Those
of us who
live shoulder
to
shoulder with nature
truly
under-stand
her
cycle.
Confessions
of
an
Eco-Redneck
nails
the
physics
of
spirituality
of our
hunting
culture."—Ted
Nugent,
United SportsmenofAmerica, latestCD,
Spirit
of the Wild
 
"Steve
Chappie
is the
ideal
paddling buddy:
a
keen
observer,
a
fine
storyteller,
and a man who
knows when
to
hang
up his
wetsuit
and
go
find a
cold
beer."
—Joe
Kane,
author
of
Running
the
Amazon
and
Savages"This
guy—this
is
high praise—writes like
a
Montanan."
Tim
Cahill,
author of
Road Fever and Pass the Butter
Worms
"A
graceful writer with
a
journalist's
sharp
eye and a
heart
as big as
his
subject,
Chapple,..makes
a fine
traveling
companion."
Hampton Sides,
Washington Post
"Mr. Chappie
has
surely
found
what
we all
look
for: the
great
good
place,
where there
are
good
people,
constancy ...a
sense
of
belonging
and
a
natural beauty still unspoiled."
—Kathy
Cone,
The New
York
Times Book Review
"Steve
Chappie writes with
a
machine gun—no hypocrite
is
safe."
—Rita Mae Brown, author of Venus Envy and Murder, She
Meowed
