A Life Lived Outdoors is a great Christmas gift

book coverI’ve been getting lots of requests for signed copies of my book, A Life Lived Outdoors, to be given as Christmas gifts. The book was published this year by Islandport Press in Yarmouth. My pastor even purchased 6 of the books for presents to her family members in Idaho.

You don’t have to contact me to buy the book. It’s in most bookstores and available online at islandportpress.com and elsewhere. But if you want a signed copy, let me know and I’ll get one to you. Email your request to georgesmithmaine@gmail.com.

Most of the columns and stories in the book were written for the editorial pages of the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel, focused on home, camp, family, faith, travel, hunting, fishing and other outdoor fun. Section One is Home, Camp, and Maine Life. Section Two is Hunting, Fishing, and Other Outdoor Fun, and Section Three is Family, Friends, and Faith.

The biggest compliment I’ve been getting from those who read the book is that the stories triggered their own wonderful memories.
