Overview

As a young boy, Buddy Levy accompanied his father into the pre-dawn twilight to hunt birds—particularly the chukar partridge. That youthful experience marked the beginning of Levy's reverence for the chukar and his indefatigable passion for hunting it. Here, Levy presents a lyrical and honest look at the world of hunting this "gorgeous, complicated, strong-flying" bird. He explores the complex (and controversial) layers of hunting through powerful descriptions of the hunt itself, the natural history of the bird, the grueling physicality of upland pursuit, the companionship of a worthy bird dog, and thoughtful reflections on the enduring allure of sport hunting.

Editorial Reviews

Jack Hemmingway
A pleasant treat is in store for the thoughtful reader of what must now be called the 'masterwork' on the subject of chukar hunting.
Stephen Bodio
Buddy Levy's Echoes on Rimrock fills a real gap in upland hunting literature. He writes with knowledge, passion, and humor.
Jim Fergus
I'm glad to see someone so imminently qualified to write the definitive book on chukar hunting. It's all here, all the practical advice you need to know about hunting chukars—from dogs to gear to landscape to the presentation on the table—stylish, even reverently told. An indispensable book for anyone interested in the chukar partridge.
Ted Leeson
Echoes on Rimrock is a wonderfully well-informed and varied look at a remarkable game bird. With intelligence, wit, and passion, Buddy Levy communicates the subtle charms, the sheer physical demands, and the barely concealed streak of pure insanity that lie at the heart of chukar hunting.
