Overview

Looking for a book for kids and young adults that isn't fantasy or paranormal? One that teaches them about hunting, the outdoors and a respect for animals in an engaging, entertaining, page-turning way? You've found it.

"Volume one of this series introduces us to Shawn Buckner, a 14-year-old outdoorsman who hits the Minnesota woodlands (by himself) in search of his first wild turkey. What transpires is a series of spectacular wildlife encounters that keeps the reader engaged from start to finish. From rattlesnakes to game wardens, this one has it all.

Through his simple delivery, vivid descriptions, and knowledge of the outdoors Pedersen succeeds in planting you firmly in the hunting boots of our young hero, and makes you want to grab your bow and have an adventure of your own. No matter how old you are." -- Nick Viau, lifeandlongbows.wordpress.com

Editorial Reviews

Shannon Young
"This book is a MUST have for kids ... and frankly, anyone who enjoys the simplicity of what the outdoors was like when you first started!" -- Shannon Young, founder of 100,000 Kids in the Outdoors

“This is a fantastic book! The detail Cory provides in the book was a learning experience for me as I am not a turkey hunter and provided quite a bit of excitement with some of the run-ins young Shawn has with the wild. I read the book but now am reading it to my 6 year old son. He loves it and looks forward to hearing more about what young Shawn is doing each night as we read a chapter a night. I highly recommend this book."

    Great coming of age story!

    This is a great coming of age story. I think it is a must read for all young adults who are getting into hunting because it will not only inspire them but will instill in them the importance of responsible hunting. Even for those who are not hunters this book is a great glimpse into the skills and trials that go into bow hunting. This book was an interesting read for me because it not only detailed the important steps involved in bow hunting but also gave facts about some of Minnesota's wildlife and hunting laws throughout the book. Definitely a book I will be recommending to some of the young adults and not-so young adults in my life!
