Book Review: Platte River Driftwood

I have to admit that I’m not much of a book reader. I do enjoy reading professional journal articles, hunting and fishing magazine articles as well as current and older NEBRASKAland magazine issues from cover to cover. However, I have been thoroughly enjoying a new book by a fellow outdoor/conservation compatriot, longtime Fremont High  School Teacher/Coach and Fremont Tribune Outdoor Writer — Bryce W. Lambley. Here’s a pic of Bryce with his deer taken by traditional archery equipment on December 20th of this past year.

Bryce’s 245-page book is entitled: Platte River Driftwood 101 of the Best of ‘Platte Valley Outdoors.’ Here’s the cover shot of it.

I think what I like best about this book thus far is it’s an easy read filled with fun, informative stories along with neat black and white photos. The book has a heavy emphasis on Nebraska’s outdoor scene. Bryce offers key outdoor messages through his personal outdoor experiences. He writes about the chapters in his book: “All related to the outdoors, some will make you laugh while others might bring a tear.  Every one of them will make you think, and most will help relive your own parallel journeys whether your home waterway is the Platte in Nebraska, or some other river, stream or creek anywhere in America.”

This book is available for purchase on Bryce’s website, at: http://www.brycelambley.com/

I’m planning on taking my copy of his book with me to the turkey hunting blind this spring to read when those gobblers aren’t gobblin’!
