His unpublished manuscript on the glory days of coastal fishing became an underground legend, passed around like a sacred totem for decades. Editor Brandon Shuler has revived Stilwell's folksy charm and penetrating insights, and the result is this engaging and important book."--;br>

."..a love letter to Tarpon and Texas...an excellent writer with a sharp wit...it would have been a great tragedy indeed if this book had not been published at all...I can't recommend this book more highly. It is a must for anyone who loves classic outdoor writing...kudos to Shuler and Texas A&M for their hard work in bringing this to print"--;br>

"On one level, the book is a jumbled tackle box of 'me and Joe'-sstyle fishing tales of tarpon and snook fishing from well down the Mexican coast all the way up to the Brazos River in Texas, it also chronicles how Stilwell learned to catch these often massive fish as well as offering occasional shiny spoons of wisdom and prophecy that anyone interested in Texas coastal fishing will enjoy."


"Tarpon are bony and not considered an edible game fish, but 'Glory of the Silver King' has plenty of meat."--;br>
--Mike Cox"Statesman.com" (10/29/2011)

"This is a fun read. Stilwell's book is a valuable addition to a sometimes overlooked area of western literature about Texas: literary outdoor writing."--Maria O'Connell, Western American Literature
