Tom Kelly's second book of essays, presumably about the bird, but there is so much more.. This time around Tom goes deeper into Wild Turkey hunting and the foibles of Southern folks. Tom writes about the Cobb family of L.A. " lower Alabama." Their hilarious antics will make you smile at the simple humor of their lives created in Tom Kelly's mind. Tom also introduces his daughter Laura as "the Colonel's daughter." Delightfully funny and always instructive, this book is another important installment in the Kelly legacy.

Tom Kelly reminds me of reading Mark Twain. Both well learned with a knack for telling a good story. Highly enjoyable. I recommend this to all who have ever spent time in the woods or would like to.
