New old topic!

Found a old 2009 post on good gundog books. More stories and journal time than training. So what are your favorite let's say fireside type dog books now. There is one called Jenny Willow that is said to be good but I have not been able to find it.

I'm reading 'Zip Zap, The Story of a Dog and a Dream' by Mike Gaddis. Good book and it really makes me want to come down south and check out the trials. Sounds very nostalgic, beautiful... and competitive!
