For his first collection of sporting essays, Dancers in the Sunset Sky, Robert F. Jones was called one of the finest outdoors writers in America. And again in Hunter in My Heart he gathers a selection of 30 essays (with an additional two short stories, serving as bookends) into one satisfying, amusing, seasoned volume. Among this treasure trove is a parody of The Great McNab, a British hunting triathlon wherein the sportsman kills a stag, a brace of grouse, and a salmon in a day, and if the hunter were to bed the cook at the end of that day, it's called a Royal McNab. Jones recounts his own version of the event in "The Royal McBob."In "A Hippie Dippie Bird Hunt", Jones gives a hilarious account of teaching hippies in a 1970s New Mexico commune to shoot. Despite their broken promise to be sober, he finds they are excellent shots.The Hunter in My Heart is also a homage to the beloved Labrador retriever; no one writes more eloquently about these canines and their genius as bird dogs. Jones expounds on Maryland dove hunts; grouse; his reluctance to kill woodcock; tracking in the snow; and Ernest Hemingway and Theodore Roosevelt. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 272 pages)Robert F. Jones is the author of eight highly acclaimed novels, including Blood Sport and The Run to Gitche Gumee as well as five works of nonfiction. His work appears in Sports Afield, Men's Journal, Outdoor Life, Audubon, Time, Sports Illustrated, Life, People, Harper's, Fly Rod & Reel, The New York Times, and Shooting Sportsman. He lives in West Rupert, Vermont.
