Dave Canterbury from Discovery Channel’s first two seasons of Dual Survival has agreed to let me post some of his videos to help my readers picture how hunters and trappers lived in the 1800’s.
My upcoming novel, The Devil’s Backbone, is set in the 1800’s.
The crops have failed, his family is starving, so fourteen year-old Brody slips out into the early morning darkness, desperate to find food in the foothills of the Devil’s Backbone. A terrible accident, a rescue by a delusional ex-slave, and a journey to find his family has Brody growing into a man… and also wanted for murder.
Dave Canterbury has 700 videos dealing with survival in the wild, hunting, and trapping. I will be posting some of these, as I believe they go along with my novel quite well.
Meet Dave in the video below.
