All those Florida boys: Travis McGee by MacDonald, Thorne by James W. Hall, Morgan Hunt by Geoffrey Norman, Max Freeman by Jonathon King and of course Carl Hiaasen.

And John Connolly's Charlie Parker does Maine's woods quite well. Of course, none of them are exclusively rural, but they all have a great feel for the land.

And Robert B. Parker's relatively forgotten WILDERNESS from early in his career, a sort of crime-fic take on DELIVERANCE, is well worth checking out.

For that matter, so is DELIVERANCE.
