Ed Mack Farrior ~ “Reflections” Update
Update on the publishing of
Reflections on Bird Dogs and the Men Who Handled Them
The new hardcover book includes many additional photographs. It is currently getting a last once-over by a professional proofreader in Montana. We are getting printing quotes and plan to have the book available this summer.
Thanks to the following for their help:
Tom Word, Bill Allen, Stephen Bell, Tonya Brotherton, and Andrew Campbell for generously giving his time (it took a lot!) to transcribe the original manuscript to digital form. Also thanks to Darren Brown who is currently proofreading the book!
Special thanks to Emily Watts, Ed Mack Farrior’s daughter, for permission to republish this wonderful book.
Stay tuned!!! — Chris Mathan, Mazie Davis
Many of the new book’s chapters have photographs of people and dogs.
