From the Publisher

This is the account of a man's initiation into the outdoors heritage of his home territory. Jim Kilgo was born and raised not to far from the bottomlands of the Great Pee Dee River in South Carolina, but it was not until he was grown that he began to respond to the powerful lure of the forests, fields, and swamplands of the South and the wildlife that inhabit them. For Kilgo, reentry into the wilderness becomes a window on the life that men can lead, within nature and out of it. His tales of hunting and fishing will delight anyone who has ever used rod or gun, yet by no means is this a book for devotees of hunting alone. What is rediscovered here illuminates the lives of human beings who, all to often unknowingly, are integrally part of the larger rhythms of nature and the seasons.

It is the bird’s very symbolism that has led to its downfall. The delicate, meter-tall birds are poached from the wild to bec

These New Photos Of Earth Lit Up At Night Are Actually Pretty Useful

NASA/NOAA A composite image with some artistic liberties taken to enhance the satellite imagery. We all like looking at pretty pictures of the Earth from space. Well, so does NASA—but for different reasons. NASA and its partner-in-crime, NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) have been taking pictures of our globe from satellites for years now to better understand things like weather patterns and large-scale human impacts. They've mostly been taking those images during the day, simply because it's easier to get high quality pictures when there's plenty of light. But human i

Green Acres

CENTENNIAL PARK, NASHVILLE After looking through old records, NBW discovered that city engineers in the 1800s had capped a natural spring under the site to make Nashville’s water supply safer during cholera epidemics. NBW managed to track down the springhead and reopened it to naturally irrigate the park. MEMORIAL PARK, HOUSTON Weaning the 1,560-acre park from potable water involved channeling and filtering runoff from a nearby freeway into five constructed ponds that can be used to feed the park. “We keep the highway from flooding, we can stop irrigating [with drinking water], and we’ve ma
