Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Every season for over 30 years, novelist William Tapply has gone "a'hunting" in the Great Northeast. Accomplished as both a hunter and an outdoor writer, he shares his favorite experiences as a bird hunter in this collection of stories. Choice fireside reading.
Boston Globe
“Tapply is a writer with a fine eye and an acute sense of place.”
Midwest Book Review
“William G. Tapply is a superstar.”
Booklist
The late Tapply shows us that he is as insightful, articulate and witty when writing about hunting in New England as he is in his Brady Coyne and Stoney Calhoun mystery series.... Fans of Tapply’s writing about fishing will recognize in these hunting essays Tapply’s signature sensitivity to the natural world.— John Rowen
