WESTERN SKIES: BIRD HUNTING IN THE ROCKIES & ON THE PLAINS
Author: John Barsness
Publisher: GLOBE PEQUOT ( THE LYONS PRESS, FALCON), Sep 1999
Anyone planning to gun the Great Plains, whether for sharptails or widgeons, ringnecks or teal, should read this evocative book at least twice--once for the fun of it and again for technique. 5x8 inches, 160 pgs.
Western Skies is a brilliant writer's story of chasing Western horizons with dog and shotgun for sage grouse, sharptailed grouse, ringnecked pheasant, Hungarian partridge, and the unending flocks of geese and ducks each autumn. This is a book all bird hunters will cherish.
Western Skies is a superb collection of stories by an outstanding writer. --Chicago Tribune
No one has written about the plains and mountains of the Northwest with more accuracy and affection, and that is what makes Western Skies the small jewel of a book that it is. --Field & Stream
