REVISED SECOND PRINTING. The IRON LAKE FISHING CLUB is nestled on the quiet end of a spring-fed lake in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. In many ways change happens more slowly there as we learn in this series of letters shared with an old friend who has moved to the Deep South: Louisiana. The news from around the lake, fishing stories and weather reports balances with traffic, alligator sightings and stories from a new fishing club. So, slow down, sit on the dock at sunset and enjoy the stories. A series of recipes round out the mix from venison stew to sausage gumbo helping to show the 1400-mile difference between Iron County, Michigan and Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana. The witty humor common among outdoorsmen everywhere shows through and will make you laugh...and think.
About the Author
Keith Davis lives and works in South Eastern Louisiana with his wife Diane, having moved there from the woods of Michigan's Upper Peninsula in 2004. The two areas, home to several diverse cultures and histories, motivated him to assemble a group of letters, many based on actual experience. What started out as just some random E-mails to friends became a monthly serial in a local magazine. The book of camp recipes and stories was the natural follow-up. Mr. Davis was born in Wisconsin, and lived and worked there, then New York State, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. And, while winter snow up to the windowsills and a dinner of boiled potatoes seemed normal in those places, he has learned to appreciate the sunny warmth of the South as well as fresh shrimp, local peaches and bread pudding with bourbon sauce. Prior to this time his writings have been published in a variety of popular magazines and trade periodicals as well as the book, "KITCHEN STORIES From The Iron Lake Fishing Club" .
