This book is a look at the passion of waterfowl hunting. The hunter is Reiger, conservation editor of Field & Stream and author of Wanderer on My Native Shore ( LJ 5/1/83). He portrays the waterfowl hunter as a human being who loves the outdoors and is fascinated by the waterfowl he hunts. Reiger acknowledges and discusses the differences in attitudes towards hunting in America and other countries: ``I like being in a land where sportsmen and naturalists are respected by their countrymen.'' A major theme of this book is that many hunters are also naturalists. This will be highly sought after by the serious bird hunter. Recommended for all public libraries.-- Mary J.
