Book: Capt. Tony Petrella «Ghost! Field Journal of a Bird Dog»

Ghost! Field Journal of a Bird Dog
A blue-ticked Llewellyn setter with thick silky feathering, one white-capped black ear, and amazingly expressive eyes, Manistee River Ghost is at the center of these stories. Surprisingly enough, all of them are true. In the Ojibwe tribal language, Ma-nist-ee means Spirit of the Woods. Over the next decade, she proved beyond doubt that never was a name more fitting for a bird dog living in our little corner of the world, Northern Michigan. Crisp October mornings were made for following an English setter through spectacular upland grouse coverts, and no dog ever did it better than Manistee River Ghost. From the very first day, her life centered around one thing finding birds and she did it magnificently. She made her first woodcock retrieve when she was 21 weeks old, and ultimately became so famous that hunters came from around the world to marvel at her phenomenal skill. Become part of her incredible 14 seasons. Revel in the absolute determination that made her so special.
