Cory Pedersen, a freelance writer from Rochester, MN contacted me a couple months ago and offered me the opportunity to review his book, Shawn Buckner's Outdoor Adventures: Spring Turkey Chronicles (Volume One).
I was delighted to read his fictional book for kids, teens, and young adults which incorporates hunting and the outdoors. The adventure of Shawn Buckner takes place in the hills and valleys of the Whitewater Wildlife Management Area in southeastern Minnesota. The story quickly draws you in as the young 14-year-old Shawn takes up bowhunting and pursues his first wild turkey. Several close encounters occur with wildlife and responsible hunting ethics are incorporated throughout the book.
As turkey season is quickly approaching, if you have a young archer in your circle of influence, I would highly recommend getting them a copy of Cory's book. It would be a great read while sitting in a turkey blind this spring.
I passed along my copy to my 8 year old nephew and he quickly lapped up the pages and is already asking for the next volume in the series. Thanks, Cory, for publishing a great book for young outdoor enthusiasts.
Now it's your turn... Read the first chapter, and then get your own copy of the book.
