AFIELD: American Writers on Bird Dogs


With a foreword by Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Ford and essays by Jim Harrison, Tom McGuane, and Tom Brokaw, this is a must-have collection of stories about hunting with man’s best friend.

This marvelous collection features stories from some of America’s finest and most respected writers about every outdoorsman’s favorite and most loyal hunting partner: his dog. For the first time, the stories of acclaimed writers such as Tom Brokaw, Howell Raines, Rick Bass, Sydney Lea, Jim Harrison, Tom McGuane, Phil Caputo, and Chris Camuto come together in one collection. Hunters and non-hunters alike will recognize in these poignant tales the universal aspects of owning dogs: companionship, triumph, joy, forgiveness, and loss.

This is a delightful, handsome volume that captures the wild spirit of dogs and those who love them.

Edited by Robert DeMott and Dave Smith.
