When award-winning outdoor and nature writer Charles Fergus decided to leave his longtime home in Pennsylvania, he wrote a memoir of his last season hunting upland birds—grouse, woodcock, and pheasant— in his favorite coverts, some of which he had visited every autumn for almost thirty years. His stories of memorable hunts and dogs, the loss of his beloved home ground, and enduring hunting friendships are gathered in A Hunter’s Book of Days, a new book from Countrysport Press.
