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.
Review: 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?'"

Buchbeschreibung Wilderness Adventures Press, 1994. Hardcover. Buchzustand: As New. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: As New. 1st Edition. Pristine SIGNED copy of a terrific book of stories. Don Thomas's writing is superb: full of humor, affection, knowledge, and brilliant descriptive passages. Consider the following, from a chapter on hunting sharptail grouse: "One minute I am alone with the dog and the silence, and then a roll of thunder rises from the grass, all wingbeats and the rich, throaty chuckle that fixes the sharptail's identity at once for the experienced prairie gunner." Fool Hen Blues is, in the end, a warm tribute to Labs, which Thomas loves for their enthusiasm, tolerance, marking ability, and courage in heavy cover.Signed by the author. Brodart protective cover on the unclipped dust jacket. In Fool Hen Blues, Don Thomas turns the sharp wit and keen insight that readers enjoyed in Whitefish Can't Jump and Longbows in the Far North on the art of wingshooting. His stories take us from the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska to the high plains of central Montana. Join Don as he hunts ducks on an spring creek in the dead of winter, chases blues in the fall, and stalks a sharptail lek with a camera in the spring. In these stories hunting and the land comprise the framework for the larger picture of life's experiences. "That may finally be what the best of the outdoors has to offer us - a means of reckoning with the rest."
