Bird Dogs and Field Trials ~ The Story of a Hall of Fame Breeder, Handler, Writer

The remarkable memoir of Jack Harper’s published in 1983. William F. Brown, Editor of the American Field at that time wrote: “There are many books on upland game bird hunting, field trial competitions, and the art of training pointing dogs, but this one is unique in many respects and will be welcomed enthusiastically by all interested in bird dogs. The principal reason is the author: John Pelham Harper, a member of the Field Trial Hall of Fame whose credentials are impeccable.”

Jack Harper enjoyed a long, successful career as a top professional handler winning countless field trial championships with dogs like The Texas Ranger, The Arkansas Ranger and Home Again Hattie. This book belongs on the bookshelf of every lover of bird dogs and pointing dog field trials!
