A. D. Livingston claims to have hopscotched through life. Navy at seventeen. Mechanical engineering at Auburn. Atomic bombs at Oak Ridge. Creative writing at University of Alabama. Missiles and rockets at Huntsville. Published a novel and played a little poker. Travel editor at Southern Living magazine. Freelance writing and outdoor photography. Word man for fishing rods and bait-casting reels with Lew Childre, the genius of modern fishing tackle. Bought the family farm. Lost the back forty publishing Bass Fishing News. Lost the rest of the farm manufacturing fishing lures. Back to freelancing. Published twenty-something books. For the past sixteen years—the sweetest of all, he claims—he has been the food columnist for Gray’s Sporting Journal. What in his previous work experience qualifies him for this position? Nothing whatsoever. He hates to work, but all his life he has loved to hunt and fish and to cook and eat the bounty. And he loves to write about it his way.
