KIRKUS REVIEW

An exhaustive treatise on quails, all seven varieties, how to know them, the sources of food, how fast they fly, where they make their nests, their eggs, their enemies, their characteristics. For each group, the author discusses way of hunting them. He devotes rather sparse space to transplanting, restocking, matters of the ""fair bag"", of illegal shooting, of waste, of the different needs in the South and West. Not a book the conservation boys will feel very happy about.
