Synopsis: The woodcock, a reclusive game bird native to Europe and North America, has been hunted, celebrated and eaten since Roman times, though most American hunters are still ignorant of its existence. Valdene's writing is at once evocative and biting, gracefully balancing the obsessions of a naturalist, sportsman and gourmand.
About the Author: Guy de la Valdene is a photographer, filmmaker and sportsman who was raised in the United States and France. He lives with his wife on a farm in Tallahassee, Florida.
