Thirty-Five Stories of Hunting and Fishing in the South
As the original publishers of My Health is Better in November, the University of South Carolina Press has had hundreds, maybe thousands, of inquiries asking when the book would be reprinted. Every Christmas we receive calls from people all over the country wanting any book by Havilah Babcock. At last, for his old faithful fans and for new fans about to enjoy an unexpected treat, here is My Health is Better in November: Thirty-five stories of Hunting and Fishing in the South by Havilah Babcock. Although these stories were first collected in 1947, they have not lost their appeal. They are packed with humor and developed with such true originality that they will delight and amuse even those who have never shouldered a gun or cast a fly.
The late Havilah Babcock, a native of Appomattox, Virginia, was for many years head of the English Department at the University of South Carolina. According to his own admission, school teaching occasionally interfered with his hunting and fishing, but never too seriously. His stories appeared in leading outdoor magazines over several decades. His other books include: Tales of Quails 'n Such, Jaybirds Go to Hell on Fridays, and I Don't Want to Shoot an Elephant.
