Estcourt, South Africa (PRWEB) May 15, 2014
Hamish Skead became a professional hunter and outfitter in 2000. He likes to say that hunting and the outdoors “run in his veins,” and with the release of his new short story collection, “Lowlands to Highlands: A Hunter's Wanderings” (published by AuthorHouse), it is easy to see why.
“Lowlands to Highlands” is a compilation of stories based on real-life events. The heart-pumping collection reveals some of the dangerous, unbelievable and downright crazy stories from Skead’s wanderings in Africa and beyond.
“The overall theme of the collection is the wonderful experience that is the outdoors and how hunting and conservation go hand in hand,” explains Skead, who, through the art of storytelling, pays tribute to the great outdoors and the exploits of adventure.
The book will be promoted through several marketing campaigns, including an email marketing campaign targeted to over 200,000 opt-in consumers, a customized author website and YouTube advertisement.
An excerpt from the book:
“Hunting is the greatest way of life and a gift to whomever can call this life theirs.
This book will tell of the people I have met, the areas we have seen, the animals we have chased, and the great adventures we have embarked on.
I am truly grateful to my family, friends, colleges, clients, and staff for making this adventure a reality. Come join the adventure.
Adversity does not build character, it reveals it!
Hunters are the best conservationists.”
