Reviews - What do customers think about The Hunter In My Heart: A Sportsman's Salmagundi?
A thoughtful collection of stories Jun 7, 2008
I've ready many outdoor books and have read all the great writers from yesteryear as well. I have to say that this is one of my favorites. I appreciate the sense of humor along with the down to earth and rather frank wording that Mr. Jones uses throughout this book. The range of topics covered is a good one, especially considering the adult content in a couple of the stories, which honestly was unexpected but quite funny as well. Great read.
Man as hunter, writer as seer Mar 15, 2007
Robert F. Jones brings an illumination to the sport of hunting that is often missing from other writers. There is an insight, a special gift that Jones has that brings us to the hunt wide eyed and ready. He speaks of favorite dogs without being soppy and sentimental. He makes passages glisten with newness even though the scene is lived out daily during the hnting season. If you are a dog lover, a hunter, or someone intereste din good writing, Jones is the man for you.
The Heart of Eevery Bird Hunter Feb 7, 2004
My wife gave me this book for Christmas. She told me that I was the hunter of her heart! Well enough with the sappy stuff, on with the review. I recently went on vacation and took the book along for a read at the beach. I read the book in two days! It was one of those books that was hard to put down. On my flight back to the states, I began to read some of the stories again, and was just as intrigued during the first read. Mr. Jones talks about hunting in with his Lab and a Jack Russell (definite twist). That would have been a pair to see in the field, a Jack Russell pointing and a Lab flushing!?!?!?! Mr. Jones has the ability to make you feel like you are right there with him. Not many authors have that ability. If you have a true passion for good hunting and great dogs, this book is it. Now that I am back to reality (cold, snowy weather), I have picked up the book sevral more times and began to read the book from cover to cover again, while I am waiting for my most recent this site order of bird hunting books. Spend the money and take the time to read this great book. It wont disapoint you.
