Inhaltsangabe: This book is a reflective account of decades experience wing-shooting in the American west. Waterfowl and upland game are both referenced, with special emphasis on the role of the versatile retriever. While the tone is lyrical and descriptive, the text contains a wealth of practical information as well.
Rezension: In Fool Hen Blues, Don Thomas turns the sharp wit and keen insight that readers enjoyed in Whitefish Can't Jump on the art of wingshooting. His stories take us from the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska to the high plains of central Montana. Throughout, Don's passion for Labs is apparent as he makes his argument for using them as versatile retrievers. Fool Hen Blues is much more than a collection of outdoor vignettes. In these stories, hunting and the land comprise the framework for the larger picture of life's experiences. As Don says, "You will tell me that I am a lucky guy because I have managed to live my life in remote places where the hunting is good and the pheasants are wild... I will then tell you that it really isn't luck at all, that anyone can do it with a proper ordering of their priorities. Then you will say that I have got to be kidding, that no responsible person would really forsake career and money and cultural amenities just to live in places where there are wild birds. And I will say: 'Wanna bet?'"
