They boldly charge into the thickest cover for pheasants, launch themselves into ice-laden water for downed mallards, face hardship with enthusiasm and pain with stoic composure. They do this not simply as a function of their breeding, but out of simple and deep devotion to their master. That devotion is returned in this stunning word and picture tribute from noted photographer Denver Bryan and writer E. Donnall Thomas. The pages brim with over 130 beautiful color photos of Labs in action across the marshes, forests, and plains of North America. Complementing these stunning images is a compelling text examining the history of Labs and chronicling their impressive traits and endearing foibles on hunts across the country.
