William Muņoz has an avid interest in ecology and the environment and has taken the photographs for a number of books written by Dorothy Hinshaw Patent. Mr. Muņoz lives in Hamilton, Montana.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-9-- Patent focuses on "hunting as a healthy family activity" rather than its controversial aspects. The Cox family is introduced; they relate their experiences shooting game and tell why they enjoy it. Succeeding chapters cover the importance of care and cleaning of weapons as well as an explanation of how bullets actually fire; the training and different roles of the Coxes' two dogs, an English pointer and a Labrador retriever; and two chapters are devoted to the hunt itself. Safety and caution are constant themes throughout, communicated through both photos and text. The content is well organized, clear, and enlightening. Those who have misgivings about the ethics of game hunting may find sections of this book difficult, but the information is accurate and cohesive, attractively presented, and useful in communities in which there is an interest in hunting. Numerous black-and-white photos of average-to-good quality accompany the narrative. While the pictures occasionally come after the appropriate text, they are always relevant and usually informative. Large print and wide margins contribute to the overall appeal of this volume. --Rosie Peasley, Somerset School, Modesto, CA
