“From his vast and remarkable storehouse of memories, Ed Mack Farrior calls forth his best recollections, reconstructing them here in narrative form with clarity, humor and depth. Reflections on Bird Dogs and the Men Who Handled Them is a window in time, a quick glimpse at the heroes of a bygone era.”
…wrote Barbara Teare in her 1997 book review of Ed Mack’s book.
