He is a birder, naturalist, and hunter-conservationist who has published essays and poetry in publications including "Orion, Audubon, Flycatcher, and Wilderness," and in several anthologies, including "The Colors of Nature," "State of the Heart," "Bartram’s Living Legacy," and "Carolina Writers at Home." An Alumni Distinguished Professor of Wildlife Ecology and Master Teacher at Clemson University, he and his family live in the Upstate of South Carolina, a soaring hawk’s downhill glide from the southern Appalachian escarpment that the Cherokee once called the Blue Wall.
