about the author

Field & Stream editor-at-large T. Edward Nickens is known for do-it-yourself wilderness adventures and profiles about people and places where hunting and fishing are the heart and soul of a community. He has chased ptarmigan and char north of the Arctic Circle, antelope in Wyoming, and striped marlin from a kayak in Baja California. Author of Field & Stream's "Total Outdoorsman" skills features, he is also host, writer, and coproducer for a number of Field & Stream's television and web shows, among them The Total Outdoorsman Challenge and Heroes of Conservation. Nickens has been a National Magazine Award finalist, and has won more than thirty writing awards, including three "Best of the Best" top honors awards from the Outdoors Writers Association of America.
