Audible Editor Reviews

Acclaimed novelist and outdoor writer William Tapply presents a series of wonderfully-observed stories about his adventures while bird hunting in the Northeast country. The stories are rich with insight not just on nature and hunting, but also on the bond between parent and child as Tapply recalls hunting experiences with his son.

Narrator Clay Teunis imbues his performance with muscular charm, placing listeners right in the midst of the rugged country that Taply clearly loved so much. Listeners will easily imagine that they are sitting with a friendly, seasoned old-timer sharing his wry and thoughtful recollections.

    Any additional comments?

    "Good Morning, Its a wonderful day" and "It was a wonderful hunt" was the way the legendary Burton Spiller began and ended his grouse hunting trips with the author when he was a boy. This is a wonderful book on the author's hunting experiences, the people he hunted with, his favorite grouse dog and a sadly changed landscape in the New England woods and grouse haunts. Highly recommended for every serious bird hunter's library.
