Mark Jeffrey Volk was brought to my attention by Uplander and he's pretty good.  Let me know if you can find a reasonably priced one or you can borrow mine.

For a real upland hunting reading treat try and get your hands on the privately published Partridge Shortening by Grampa Grouse (Gorham Cross)

I've read most of the available upland and grouse related lit and this one has to be my favorite.  So many great books, but none describe the fun and adventure of chasing 'pats with trusted friends and dogs quite as well.

Yep, I couldn't think of Gorham Cross when I recommended it earlier.  I think I may know where to look for a copy Frank, or if you can't find it, you can just read my copy...

More than any other book, this one takes you back and makes you feel the classic New England Hunting experience....

I've been reading "Thats Ruff" by George King.

I like it, it is made up of a lot of short easy to read stories and chapters which suits my short attention span.

I also enjoyed Jenny Willows which others have mentioned.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.. I have picked up more than a few of the books that suggested. I would love a copy of partridge shortenin, but the cost may have to make it a special gift at a later date. I was also surprised Tim did not offer up books with lots pf pictures, or books that you color in. :D

I think told us what kind of picture "books" he likes.  We stopped giving him the ones you color in because he kept eating the crayons.  :<img src=:'>  :<img src=:'>

I've just been working on winter bookshelf offerings for my blog on Ruffed Grouse Minnesota later this month. I chose 2 Wisconsin authors and 3 Minnesota writers.

Hunting the Sun by Ted Lundrigan, one of a trilogy.

Timberdoodle Tales by Tom Waters

The Singing Wilderness by Sigurd Olson

and from East of the St. Croix:

A Sand County Almanac  by Aldo Leopold

The Gordon MacQuarrie Sporting Treasury by Gordon MacQuarrie (or any of the Old Duck Hunters books by Mac).
