Corey Ford wrote a wonderful column in "Field & Stream" magazine called "Minutes of the Lower Forty. It is a fictional history of a New Englad hunting club and the characters and stories are hilarious. Ford was one of those New York society writers who could have (and probably did) sat at the Algonquin Table on occasion.

Corey Ford had a gift for capturing real life characters on the pages of his books. Corey Ford (1902 - 1969) is best known for his involvement with Dartmouth College, Hanover, . where he was a mover and shaker, not only involved from a literary stand, but also their Rugby team. I still get teary-eyed reading "The Road To Tinkhamtown", probably his best work. He is best know by the general public for his monthly column in Field and Stream Magazine which ran during the 1950s and 1960s where he recorded the comings and goings of The Lower Forty - a group of hardcore outdoorsmen.

Corey Ford, columnist featured in Field & Stream, tells his most treasured stories in this hardcover book.
  • I have a 1st edition of this book and have read it many times. I also read the columns from F&S that are collected in this book. It is an excellent binding and made the perfect gift.

  • The stories have lost none of the luster they had when I first read them well over fifty years ago.

  • I read most of the original "Lower Forty" stories in Field and Stream as a youth and more as a young adult. Re-reading them as an old man brings back treasured memories of time spent afield with friends and times with our own local sportsman's clubs. In many cases life does imitate art. Corey Ford had a gift for capturing real life characters on the pages of his books. I still get teary-eyed reading "The Road To Tinkhamtown", probably his best work. Any true sportsman would enjoy this book and I highly recommend it!

  • If you are a hunter/fisherman you will greatly enjoy Corey Ford stories.

    For us older folks that remember "Tales of The Lower Forty" in Field & Stream many years ago this is a very pleasent return to our past. This book appears to be a collection of the old Field & Stream column. There is also the Corey Ford book "Minutes of The Lower Forty" which is excellent.

    All of Corey Fords work reminds of us "simpler" times, every story leaves you chuckling and feeling a litle happier.

    Highly recommended.

  • good book, I did like it very much.

  • Oh my goodness, what a wonderful collection this is! Corey Ford (1902 - 1969) is best known for his involvement with Dartmouth College, Hanover, N.H. where he was a mover and shaker, not only involved from a literary stand, but also their Rugby team. He is best know by the general public for his monthly column in Field and Stream Magazine which ran during the 1950s and 1960s where he recorded the comings and goings of The Lower Forty - a group of hardcore outdoorsmen. This is where I became familiar with his work. Field & Stream in those days was a magazine; a real magazine and not the collection of pure junk they feature on their pages today. Even though he is best known for this column, he, in addition to those wonderful little stories, wrote 50 books and published over 500 magazine articles in his time.

    Ford loved the outdoors and his writing here reflects that. He was also a humorist of the first order and again, his writing reflects that also. I use to wait impatiently each month so I could read and reread the latest adventures (or more often than no, the misadventures of the Lower Forty).

    This volume is a collection of those stories which appeared in his columns of those forgotten days. It also includes a short story, `The Road to Tinkhamtown;" a story which, like others here, I consider some of Ford's best work. It is the story on an old hunter and his old dog and if this little tale does not bring a tear to your eye, then you have some sort of problem. Anyway, even though I read and reread these stories years and years ago, I still find myself laughing out loud as I read them as an old man today.

    I will confess to you that I enjoy writing...I am not much good at it, but I enjoy it and try my best. There were two authors that influenced me as to my writing more than any others - Robert Rourke was one and Corey Ford was the other. I owe quite a bit to those two old authors.

    Even if you are not one that enjoy outdoor stories; hunting, fishing, messing around in the woods, I feel you would enjoy this one, if for no other reason than the skill of the writing and the abundance of humor.

  • Agree with the other reviewers; these are golden age sporting stories of the highest caliber. While much of the writing in outdoor magazines today is filled with equipment reviews, I fondly remember reading these in the 60's, and those articles and others changed my life. Maybe led to too much time spent in elk camps, duck blinds, and running rivers, but now that I am older those were the best times. Highly recommended.

  • A child of the '50s, I grew up in a small Midwestern town where I learned to hunt and fish in country very much like Mr. Ford's fictional Hardscrabble, USA. One of my first magazine subscriptions was to Field & Stream, in the pages of which I quickly became a devout vicarious member of The Lower Forty Shooting, Angling and Inside Straight Club -- even if in those days I hadn't a clue as to what an inside straight might be.
    As things turned out, mine was to be a life membership. Those wry, folksy hi-jinksy denizens of Uncle Perk's hardware and dry goods store -- Doc Hall, Judge Parker, Angus McNab, Colonel Cobb, Cousin Sidney, Dexter Smeed and others -- stayed with me into manhood, forever fussing amongst themselves in some stove-warmed, nostalgic recess of my memory -- long after Mr. Ford passed away and Field & Stream became just another slick magazine with more ad inserts and attached postcards than real pages.
    Thus, I met with excitement and a little nervousness the publication of this book -- The Corey Ford Sporting Treasury -- happy to be reunited with the old gang, yet wondering if they would stand up to the passage of time. I'd been disappointed before revisiting books that enthralled me as a youngster, finding as an adult that I couldn't recapture the magic.
    Not so with this collection. If you'd believe me, I'd say the grey started leaving my hair and the pains from my joints as once again I perched unseen on a cracker barrel and listened to the old boys needling each other and plotting some practical joke on Deacon Godfrey or Owl Eyes Osborn -- a joke that more often than not would backfire on one of the club members.
    But the real reward in discovering this treasure, besides the choicest of the Lower Forty's "Minutes," were the other pieces Mr. Ford had published over the years he was writer-in-residence at Dartmouth College.
    By far the most profound -- in fact, one of the most moving stories I have ever read -- is the grand finale of the book, winning an entire Part of the book's three divisions. It's called "The Road to Tinkhamtown," and it's about an old hunter and his beloved old hound, Shad. This beautifully crafted story has just enough of Ford's signature droll humor in it to keep one guessing, but not enough ultimately to keep away the tears. And if you want to know why, you'll have to take the road to Tinkhamtown all by yourself.
