About the Author

Buddy McCoy was born in Colquitt County, Georgia in the small town of Berlin where he learned to fish along the banks of the Little River and the Okapilco creek and hunt quail with his Uncle B. That area became his paradise in the wilderness and helped create a passion for the outdoors that would last a lifetime. He graduated from Moultrie High School where he captained his football team and was an All State player. He went to Georgia Tech on a football scholarship and became a three year starter and letterman on Coach Bobby Dodd's last three teams, playing in the Gator Bowl and Orange Bowl. He was a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and was named to their 1966 All American team. He graduated from Tech with a degree in Civil Engineering. Shortly after graduation he became Albany, Georgia's City Engineer. He worked closely with Jim Fowler from Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom while helping build Chehaw Wild Animal Park, and became the founding President of Chehaw Wildlife Society. He later practiced as a private consultant for nearly 30 years while licensed as a Registered Land Surveyor and a Professional Engineer. During that time he wrote many technical reports. His love of the great outdoors, especially while hunting and fishing, inspired him to write short stories about his adventures to share with his four children whom were literally scattered all over the world. Over the years e-mail facilitated their communication and his stories helped form the basis for "A Walk On The Beach, A True Love Story From Tybee Island", his first publication.He currently practices as a Licensed Realtor in Moultrie, Georgia and was recently inducted into the Colquitt County Sports Hall Of Fame.

Buddy McCoy's "A Walk to Remember" is one of the best reads I have come across in a long time. His use of extremely descriptive prose makes you feel as you are there and could reach out and touch the scene taking place.

This is a fantastic relaxing read, and is sure to leave you smiling at many points throughout. One of the best things about this book is that, despite it's cover and title, it is enjoyable to men as well as women. There are many stories of fishing, and hunting, as well as love.

Absolutely fantastic read that should be read by anyone who appreciates top notch, Hemingway-esque imagery.

A+++

I love the down home, country style of prose. When reading A Walk on the Beach, there's never any doubt whether Ol' Buddy is a good old Georgia boy or not.
I read it straight through the first time. Now I've got a decision to make: Head to Tybee, Spring Warrior Creek, or Boggy Pond first? I'm thinking Spring Warrior...

I gave this book to my sister-in-law as a gift. She visits Tybee Island each summer and I knew she would enjoy
it. Therefore, I cannot rate it.
