This book is a compilation of 57 essays on diverse subjects ranging from anthropomorphism to failed batteries. They’re from a portfolio of more than 400 articles I’ve written over the past 40 years which have been published in various newspapers and magazines under the byline Woodshed Wisdom. I named it that because much of the wisdom I’ve attained was imparted to me behind the woodshed. My writing was influenced by my father, Oliver Ross Stevens, who was Outdoor Editor for the Manchester Union Leader and President of New England Outdoor Writers Association. It is rewarding to note that my grandchildren, Jack and Megan Stevens, still young students, are recognized and published authors
