2018 Right Off The Reel By Gordon MacQuarrie



Right Off The Reel
New Gordon MacQuarrie Book!
His Newspaper Column Stories Previously Unpublished in Book Form

Dave Evenson, Editor
Right Off The Reel contains eighty-four stories from MacQuarrie’s newspaper columns at the Milwaukee Journal written 1936-1956.

Dave Evenson lives in Cumberland, Wisconsin. His territory while he was working as a wildlife manager for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources included MacQuarrie’s Shallow Bay where he had his first duck hunt and other local duck wallows. He is, by virtue of his age, an old duck hunter and an angler for bluegills.

He hunts out of a canoe and over wooden decoys he has made himself. In season, you might find him collecting maple sap, wild berries and plums or harvesting wild rice. Evenson, a Barnes Area Historical Museum volunteer, produced Right Off The Reel for the widespread world of MacQuarrie fans with all profits assigned to the Barnes Area Historical Museum to support the MacQuarrie Exhibit and MacQuarrie programs and further the MacQuarrie legacy.
