MASON, Texas – In his new book, "The Buck Never Got Here," local writer and outdoors enthusiast Kendal Hemphill dishes humor that readers of all backgrounds will enjoy.
Called a cross between Dave Barry and Pat McManus, no subject is too delicate for Hemphill, no politician too insulated, no topic too sensitive to be speared with the arrow of cynicism and barbequed on the backyard pit of sarcasm. Readers may not learn how to use a compass, build a canoe, or cast a flyrod from this book, but they will certainly appreciate the humorous respite from their busy lives.
According to Ted Nugent, "Down to earth and grounded are two of the most praiseworthy compliments one can receive. Kendal Hemphill deserves both of these compliments and verily reeks of this aboriginal down and dirty connection to the good mother earth."
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Hemphill lives in Mason, Texas, where he writes a weekly outdoor humor column for some of the local newspapers and a monthly political commentary column for "Texas Fish & Game" magazine. He has won numerous awards for his writing from state and national outdoor writers’ organizations, including Texas Outdoor Writers Assn., Outdoor Writers Assn of America, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation. He hunts, fishes, camps, and canoes with his wife and three boys as often as possible.
