POINTING DOGS VOLUME ONE: The Continentals
by Craig Koshyk
This is a must for anyone with more that a passing interest in HPRs. Filled with fascinating insights from the author who has personally observed the various breeds in the field. Thoroughly researched, and beautifully illustrated, it’s hand downs the best book on the subject I’ve come across. Published in Canada, we’ve imported a box of books, and more will be on the way if required.
Over a decade in the making, Pointing Dogs, Volume One: The Continentals, by Craig Koshyk, is more than a rich collection of photographs. It is a definitive guide to the versatile gundog breeds of Continental Europe. It is an in-depth study of the history, development and current status of the pointing dog. And it is a remarkable travelog of an incredible journey. Written by a hunter for hunters, this volume provides detailed descriptions of all the pointing breeds from Continental Europe and it is illustrated with stunning images of hunting dogs doing what they were bred to do: hunt!
