Reviews - What do customers think about A Hunter's Road: A Journey with Gun and Dog Across the American Uplands (Field & Stream)?

Highly Recommended  Aug 24, 2008
As a fellow bird hunter and conservationist, I am just going to say that I am thankful for writers such as Jim Fergus who in this book explores the ethics of hunting in a modern world while traveling around the country on a five-month long hunting trip with his beloved yellow lab, Sweetzer.

An environmentalist and hunter, Fergus is ostensibly biased against the hunters that have an attitude that differs from his own and he unobtrusively confronts those who seem to lack respect and compassion toward the environment and the animals they kill. He criticizes those for whom it is more important to "limit out" than to preserve the resources that we have. Fergus has tremendous respect for the birds he kills and the reader is acutely aware of the paradox of killing an animal and feeling remorse at the same time.

He raises good questions about the viability of hunting any kind of game in the future in the United States, especially on public lands. Hopefully it will motivate Americans to take more measures to protect the environment and wildlife habitat, if only so that we can continue to enjoy the pursuit of hunting in the wild just as our ancestors have always done so.
Hunter's Road  Feb 25, 2008
Good read, nice book about his travels with his dog. Covers most of the country bird hunting. Not preachy but makes good points about loss of habitat and regional differences in the way folks hunt birds.
Extraordinary Writing And Storytelling  Sep 28, 2005
This is a superbly written book about the outdoors and people. It chronicles the authors five-month long bird hunting odyssey across the U.S.. I cannot recommend it more highly.
Superb writing!  May 15, 2005
I've never hunted in my life but I was swept into this adventure with Fergus and his dog, Sweetzer. It was an exciting and thought-provoking read and I learned much about bird hunting (methods and ethics), the land, and our fragile environment. Fergus' writing style is humorous and intuitive. It's a must read for all who care about our environment.
Bo-ring  Jan 20, 2005
I liked the premise and based on the reviews bought A Hunters Road. Good outdoor writing effectively takes the reader afield in their minds eye, be it the forest of Maine, the flats off the Florida Keys or the African Savannah. Good outdoor writing also speaks to the place that hunting and fishing holds in our life; how it is a part of us emotionally and spiritually. Consequently, good outdoor writing is a tough job, one that A Hunters Road is not up to. For all it's promise this book is a relatively dry travel journal peppered with sappy hunting cliches.
