GROUSE FEATHERS by Burton L. Spiller


Email this review


The opening of the fall gunning season could have no better herald than Grouse Feathers, a book guaranteed to bring to bring overwhelming nostalgia to every ardent sportsman, and to spur on the uninitiate to seek fresh fields to conquer. A study of grouse and woodcock shooting, of the joys of the chase and the out-of-doors, of the basic principles leading to success -- the choice and use of the gun, the handling of a dog, how to get the full value out of the covers, and so on. One can almost feel the snap of the fall air, the scent of the ground, and share the thrill of it all. Numerous anecdotes, human and wild life. Delightfully done and perfectly illustrated with pencil sketches by Lynn Bogue Hunt. The background is New England -- but the market is sportsmen, everywhere. Limited to 950 copies. A fine piece of bookmaking.
