Shane Townsend

Shane was raised in his grandmother's boarding house somewhere between the Pascagoula River and the Mississippi Sound. He's hiked the Andes, fished with machetes in the Amazon basin, and paddled dugout canoes deep within Asia's Ring of Fire. He's a former Peace Corps volunteer and a full participant in the farm-fur-fin-and-feather-to-fork-food-chain. His work has won awards from the Outdoor Writers Association of America, the Texas Outdoor Writers Association, and others. His work can be found in GAFF, USA TODAY, Hunt & Fish, Field & Stream, Quail Forever Journal, and elsewhere. He writes from Austin. Learn about his new book at
