THE WILD ONES: A QUEST FOR NORTH AMERICA'S FOREST & PRAIRIE GROUSE The Wild Ones is a fresh, well-written, and beautifully illustrated look at one family of North America's most popular game birds: the grouse. Enriched by both natural history and personal experiences, this book centers around a quest for understanding the common element-wildness-that clearly connects North America's prairie and forest grouse with the wild places they call home. The Wild Ones links the past, present and future of the birds and the land. This is a place book, a people book, a dog book, a resource book... a book of experiences that travels from the northern Minnesota aspen forests, to grape-tangled Appalachian hillsides, to Montana sagebrush flats, and the big empty of Dakota prairie skies.This book includes ruffed grouse, blue grouse, and spruce grouse (forest grouse) and sharptailed grouse, sage grouse, and prairie chickens (prairie grouse.) ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR:Dennis Burkhart does his best work on the subjects he pursuesas an avid outdoorsman, including grouse, turkeys and waterfowl.
