I found the first few chapters of this book to be compelling reading, maybe because Jones' early upland and waterfowl hunting experience parallels my own. Then the middle chapters seemed written by a different person. The final chapters were, I thought, excellent and written as were the first. I thought it to be a good book, but I passed it on to a friend rather than add it to my library.
Publishers Weekly, 1996-05-20 To Jones (Upland Passage), who lives in Vermont and has been at it for 50 years, hunting is a religion, and its high priests are gundogs. He claims he was taught to hunt by a pair of half-wild Irish setters. Most of his dogs have been Labradors but he has a remarkably unlikely retriever in a Jack Russell terrier. He takes a surrogate grandson to a hunting lodge and watches the boy shoot his first bird. Jones warns that turkey hunting can be hazardous and offers nine safety tips to the unwary. Hunters will find these engaging essays much to their taste. (Aug.)
