Library Journal Review

Grooms believes modern agricultural systems have degraded Midwestern farmland and hunting environments. Most of the book, however, is a paean to the ways pheasants and hunting have enriched his life. In Modern Pheasant Hunting (Stackpole, 1982), he pronounced judgment on equipment and tactics; here he offers series of stories illustrating his maturing awareness of quality vs. quantity issues. Like Joel Vance ( Upland Bird Hunting, LJ 6/1/82), he celebrates place and experience with passion, candid self-awareness, and an eye for detail. He seeks the moments when ``the land and the bird and the dog form a holy triangle.'' Any hunter experienced in the glory years of the 1960s will nod knowingly; the later generation may have to settle for envy. Recommended for public libraries, particularly those east of the Mississippi River.-- Roland Person, Southern Illinois Univ. Lib., Carbondale (c) Copyright 2010.
