By Mark Parman

Like that previous grouse hunter Aldo Leopold, Mark Parman takes to the woods whilst the aspens are smoky gold. the following, in an evocative almanac that chronicles the early season of the grouse hunt via its result in the snows of January, Parman follows his puppy during the altering timber and foliage, thrills to the surprising flush of thrashing wings, and holds a chook in hand, grateful for the meal it's going to offer. Distilling twenty seasons of grouse searching into those essays, he writes of previous canines and gun lust, disguise and transparent slicing, weather switch, partners female and male, flora and fauna paintings, and stumps. A Grouse Hunter's Almanac delves into the brain of a hunter, exploring the Northwoods with a watch for greater than simply game.

"Notable and quotable. Parman stakes out unique territory and offers a shiny image of the Northwoods."—John Motoviloff, writer of Wisconsin Wildfoods: a hundred Recipes for Badger nation Bounties

"Extremely wealthy and distinctive. Parman places forth unique and real experiences."—Richard Yatzeck, writer of searching the Edges

Tagebuch I (Thoreaus Tagebücher) (German Edition)
