This stunning anthology is a celebration of the Brittany, a dog that has won the hearts of countless generations of bird hunters and their families. Equally at home pointing woodcock on the soft ground of New England alder thickets and scenting chukar partridge on the swirling winds of rocky western mountains, the Brittany is first and foremost a gun dog. The breed’s skill and occasional antics afield are wonderfully told in these twenty-six stories.
Most of the authors are legends of outdoor writing, men like Ben O. Williams, Charley Waterman, Michael MacIntosh, Stephen Mulak, and Bill McClure. Anyone with more than a passing interest in the delightful Brittany will find hours of pleasure between the covers of this book.
