THE OUTLAW GUNNER The Outlaw Gunner is the colorful story of market gunning in both its legal and illegal phases. This is the tale of the market gunners, guides, and outlaws who were engaged in a unique occupation. From them comes the most authoritative and comprehensive study of the art of wildfowling ever written. WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:"It's one of the best manuals ever written for successful legal hunting as well...Tidewater Publishers gave [Walsh] a free hand in his approach, and the results are fascinating."Bill Burton, outdoors editor, The [Baltimore] Evening SunABOUT THE AUTHOR:Harry M. Walsh, M.D., is a native of Chestertown, Maryland. He grew up as a riverman on the wild and lonely marshes that fringe the Chesapeake Bay and served his apprenticeship with an old market gunner. By the age of thirteen he was hiring out as a hunting guide, supplementing the family income and, later, helping pay his way through college.Dr. Walsh is a graduate of Washington College and the University of Maryland Medical School. For many years he was on the staff of the Memorial Hospital in Easton, Maryland. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is a member of the Scout and Raider Museum and will be inducted into their Hall of Fame in Fort Pierce. He was one of the founders of Easton's famous annual Waterfowl Festival, a founder of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Maryland, and a founder of the Chincoteague National Wildlife Center in Virginia.
