About the Author
Rip Cunningham grew up around the water and has had a direct connection to a lot of its finned residents. He was the Editor-In-Chief/Publisher/Owner of Salt Water Sportsman, at that time the largest saltwater sport fishing magazine in the world. For the last 50 years, he has written hundreds of articles for a number of titles on fishing techniques, fisheries management and conservation. He still remains the Conservation Editor of Salt Water Sportsman. He received a BA from Rollins College and an MBA from Babson College. Having fished on almost every continent and ocean, he is now focused on trying to make sure common property fish resources are here for generations to come. He and his wife, North, live part-time along the coast of Maine and part-time in the woods of Massachusetts, where their seven grandchildren command attention. He uses all of his lifelong experience to leave the world a little bit better place and to have sustainable resources for all to enjoy, especially his grandchildren. He has also been appointed to state and federal fishery management commissions and councils. In 2015, he was inducted into the Fishing Hall of Fame.

"Where the Acorn Falls is a charming, nostalgic remembrance of simpler times packed with details and fond memories of a life well lived."

Cort Casady, Emmy Award-winning television writer-producer and author of Not Your Father's America

"At times light-hearted, at times self-disclosing, Cunningham's intimate reflections on his road less traveled are filled with love, candor, and life's inevitable regrets." Harry Groome, author of The Best of Families

"Rip Cunningham has led a charmed life and he writes about it charmingly in Where the Acorn Falls. From an idyllic boyhood in the '50s, through high school, college, a stint with the Coast Guard, and his professional life of owning and running "Salt Water Sportsman" magazine, he never stopped having fun in the outdoors with rod and gun. He writes with so much style and verve that a reader can't help but envy both his skill with the written word and the life he describes with it." Charles Gaines, A lifelong sportsman and New York Times bestselling author of 22 books. He lives with his wife and dogs in Nova Scotia and Alabama.
