We chat with Chad Adams about his new novel HOW TO WALK IN THE MARSH that is taking off like a migrating mallard!
In his first book, Chad proves himself a wordsmith... weaving a rich tapestry of characters, setting and story in the fascinating natural world of South Louisiana.  Bridging the years, a young boy learns valuable life lessons during duck hunting trips with his father that help him to overcome adversity.
If you love Robert Ruark's Old Man and the Boy stories, you will love Chad's novel. It has heart and soul and depth without resorting to being Hallmarkish and sappy. It's destined to be a favorite of women and teens. And it's a great remedy for duck season withdrawal symptoms.  BUY TWO COPIES -- one to keep and one to bless someone you care about. -- Gordy Gordon
Order on Amazon.com or thru eBay.
Here's what readers are saying about it...
“Reading this book was like taking a walk through the heart of a father!”
“This book brought me back to the days I spent with my father on the water. It even seemed like it was my story written from the author’s eyes.”
“…a well-told fictional life journey of a boy growing into a man with an emphasis on the lessons he learned from his father.”
“The first few chapters put me right back in the marsh where I spent so many good times with my grandson and son-in-law. So many life lessons making you realize how short life is and how you should never take any day for granted!”
“As a father and duck hunter, I have been blessed to spend time chasing ducks with my sons. This book really hits a home run in expressing how important and special that relationship can be.”
“A very touching book about duck hunting in South Louisiana, family legacy, love, and the relationship between a father and son that will inspire all ages, demographics and genders for so many years to come.”
