From laugh-out-loud funny to deeply poignant, A Life Lived Outdoors presents a collection of hand-picked essays by George Smith, one of Maine’s favorite outdoor writers, exploring the way life should be, could be, and sometimes is in the great state of Maine. After writing more than 850,000 words for his newspaper editorial column, over a 22-year period, George Smith had plenty to offer for this, a collection of his favorite columns. In his first book, George writes about home and camp, family and friends, life in rural Maine, hunting and fishing and other outdoor fun. Readers will also find a few columns that previously appeared in Down East magazine, and some that George wrote especially for this book.
