Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Unlike bears, pheasants could not be found in North America until the 1700s when George Washington requested some be sent from Britain. The number was small, though, and their health was less than ideal so they did not thrive. It was not until 1881 and subsequent years, with the advent of a new batch being imported from China, that hunting pheasants became a popular pastime. What is the best type of gun to use when hunting pheasants? A shotgun. How should a hunter dress? In layers, boots, and perhaps a nylon jacket to keep thorns and burrs away from the skin. What types of dogs are best suited for hunting pheasants? Labrador and golden retrievers, English springer spaniels, and German shorthaired pointers are trained to flush out and retrieve the birds after they have been shot. Like the other books in the series “Into the Great Outdoors,” this one covers tips and techniques about hunting as well as the importance of conservation. Hunters and those dreaming about hunting will appreciate the thoroughness of the research. The book, complete with photographs and glossary, would be a great addition to any elementary or middle grade science classroom. Reviewer: Bonita Herold; Ages 8 to 14.
