Smoky, Duke, Tommy and Ole Sally


Smoky, Duke, Tommy
and Ole Sally

A book by Jerry Lemonds

When Jerry was 15, he had a young stallion colt named “Smoky.” In Lincoln, Jerry had a pheasant retriever named “Duke” which he gave to Beth, his youngest daughter. John, the youngest child and Beth raced up and down the carpeted stairs and rolled on the living room floor with Duke when they were 4-5. Jerry took Duke on his last pheasant hunt when Duke was about 15 human years. Thoughts of Smoky and Duke bring back wonderful memories of life before the City and the Navy.

Jerry Lemonds JERRY

He's a hiker, a camper, and a lifelong canoeing enthusiast. He's also a nationally recognized author who's published several recent books that celebrate the joys of all three pursuits.

After completing his 2003 autobiography (Timer: An American Story), the peripatetic Jerry Lemonds would go on to write two high-octane novels about his remarkable experiences as a long-distance canoe-pilot
(The Lonely Paddler of the Missouri) and as a U.S. Navy airman during the Korean War era (The Delta Lovers).

Born and raised on a cotton farm in small-town Missouri, Jerry Lemonds put himself through college and earned two graduate degrees . . . before spending the next 35 years running a series of federal and state
health and workers' compensation agencies. 
Working in more recent years as a successful management consultant and as a guide in the national "Volunteers In Parks" program, the adventure-loving Lemonds frequently wanders the country in his RV, and has so far visited 16 National Parks.
