Ernest Herndon's Website and Blog

My canoeing buddy and coauthor of the forthcoming book: Paddling the Pascagoula, has recently launched his own website:, as well as started a blog called Leather Britches. Leather Britches is the name of his long-time weekly outdoor column at the McComb Enterprise-Journal, the newspaper in south Mississippi where he works as a full-time reporter.

The website (which I am building for him), will be a one-stop place on the Internet to find out all about his books - both his current ones and out-of-print works - and provides links to purchase them from Amazon. There will soon be many photos posted from his various adventurous exploits, from the backwoods of the Deep South, to the highland jungles of New Guinea.

The Leather Britches blog will feature an online version of his weekly outdoor column, which always offers fascinating stories from southwest Mississippi and beyond. An example is his most recent article about a 7-foot long Gulf sturgeon recently found in the Bogue Chitto river. To read it go to the blog at:
