Many's the sportsman who'll quietly chuckle and reminisce as he reads these stories of duck, quail, woodcock and dogs laid on Long Island, Virginia, marsh or thicket--there is always a nice characteristic tang to them. They are short tales often full of brittle humor, sometimes full of the pathos so dear to sporting authors' and readers' hearts. The author, a well known painter and etcher, is as much at home with a gun as a pencil. Collectors of his etchings will provide a ready made market for this book as they did for Stray Shots, his earlier volume. The de luxe edition with an original signed etching made especially for it, is reasonably priced at $75.00 and will be an important item with collectors.
