Ed Mack Farrior ~ Book Progress!
The soon-to-be republished book Reflections On Bird Dogs and The Men Who Handled Them is coming along. We are still hoping to have it available for Christmas. The book is almost finished the design stage and the photo pages containing many additional photographs. These photo were found in old editions of the American Field from about 1950 onwards. The scanned images, most of poor quality, require a lot of time to digitally restore them but they will add much to the new edition of the book. Where possible, small photos have also been included before many of the chapter headings.
Thanks to Andrew Campbell who kindly transcribed the book, proving a digital copy of the text.
