GREAT SPORTING QUOTES--NEW BOOK BY CASADA AND SPORTING CLASSIC MAGAZINE
Passages: The Greatest Quotations from Sporting Literature:
A compilation of wisdom and wit from the world of the outdoors. Published as part of the celebration of Sporting Classics magazine’s 30th anniversary,
The excerpts were chosen by co-editors Chuck Wechsler, the Editor and Publisher of Sporting Classics, and Jim Casada, the magazine’s Editor at Large. The latter conceived the idea of a “Quotes” section as the back page of the magazine 28 years ago, and over the years it has become one of the most popular sections of Sporting Classics.
Readers will find musings and insights from greats such as Hemingway, Ruark, Rutledge, Leopold, Thoreau, Buckingham, Hill, and Babcock, along with snippets of verse from the likes of Robert Service, Rudyard Kipling, and Robert Frost.
The 208-page book includes an Introduction by Jim Casada; an essay entitled “A Fit Inheritance” by Michael Altizer; and dozens of old woodcuts, drawings, and etchings as illustrations. The attractive Smythe-sewn hardback, with gilt edges, gold embossing on the front and spine, and a handsome dust jacket, sells for $25 and can be ordered from Jim Casada (www.jimcasadaoutdoors.com) or Sporting Classics (www.sportingclassics.com).
