Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed novelist and outdoor writer William Tapply presents a series of wonderfully-observed stories about his adventures while bird hunting in the Northeast country. The stories are rich with insight not just on nature and hunting, but also on the bond between parent and child as Tapply recalls hunting experiences with his son.
Narrator Clay Teunis imbues his performance with muscular charm, placing listeners right in the midst of the rugged country that Taply clearly loved so much. Listeners will easily imagine that they are sitting with a friendly, seasoned old-timer sharing his wry and thoughtful recollections.

Tales of New England bird hunting by an acclaimed novelist and sportsman.
In this collection of original stories, highly acclaimed novelist and outdoor writer William Tapply shares his finest stories of bird hunting in the Northeast country. Every season for over 30 years, Tapply has hunted the fields and backcountry of New England.

With his dog Burt, Tapply takes the listener out to his best spots. These are hard-charging tales of success and disappointment, anticipation, and triumph - familiar feelings to any experienced hunter.

With rich prose and Tapply’s strong eye for detail, this book is a fine testament to bird hunting, bird hunters, and the rugged country that they tread each and every season. For those who love to hunt and those who simply love great outdoor writing, this is Upland Autumn.
