    1. Guy de la Valdene reminisces about a life of bird hunting from his green days as a youth in France to his mature years in Montana. His writings are sprinkled with interesting facts about historical hunts, land management and the nature and habits of the birds he hunts. Like many who have hunted for years the killing gives way to a greater appreciation for life and the hunt becomes more of a time for connecting with old friends and watching the dogs work.

    2. Recently re-read, and just as grand as the first read. Great Book. Exceptional! In between bouts of blue-blood, French-ness, trust-fund bratiness, smugness, and snobbishness, there is treasure. I wish I had a list of all the perfect sentences used to describe dogs that I have highlighted over the years. If I did, the list would be longer after reading this. Equally educational and entertaining. I only recently came to know about this book. I'm certainly glad I found it. This is a book I will re- [...]

    3. Excellent memoir on the outdoors by a Frenchman with a full appreciation of the hunting life from both a French and an American perspective. The title, by the way, is taken from a quote about the smell of a dog's paws

    4. Everyone has raved about this one. The prose is beautiful but the guy waxes poetically about hunting and killing animals. What is the point? Not interested- read about this somewhere and decided to read it.

    5. even if you don't like hunting, this is a great book. the author shoots less and less as time goes on. and eats everything he kills. finely and respectfully prepared. with drinks.
