"Blue and Some Other Dogs" is a brilliant memoir about Graves' Basque-Australian sheep dog. "Guns of a Lifetime" tells the stories related to the guns this octogenarian Texan has owned, beginning with a "rusted and cylinderless" revolver. "So here are the stories," Graves writes. "They are not all ‘nice’ tales in contemporary terms. Political correctness, as presently defined, may be perpetrated here and there, though I hope no parts will seem like the maunderings of a Deep South redneck. But if they do, the hell with it. I am too old to fret about such matters." It’s delightful writing from a treasure of a writer.

How to Help Gun Dogs Train Themselves

How to Help Gun Dogs Train Themselves

CHAPTER 1 THE KEYS Ihe questions that perpetually arise from first-time gun
dog owners are: When should I start training my dog? What is the best method to
use for training my dog? Why won't my dog retrieve? Why doesn't my dog point?

This is more than a training book aimed at the first time owner. According to Bill Tarrant, Field and Stream magazine's gun dog editor, Bailey's book is a stand-up, self-propelling training and dog behaviour book that emphasises the first days of a pup's life in effective training.. In addition, Outdoor Life magazine's hunting dog editor Larry Mueller says, Hopefully Joan's insight into the dog's first year will at last clarify this important subject. The timely thrust of this book is how to accomplish the amazing things that can be done ONLY while the dog is but a baby. If you have a pup, don't put this book aside to read later..

Mad Dogs With Guns

In 1919, the US Government declared the production, distribution, and sale of alcohol illegal. America officially became a 'dry' land. That didn't stop people from drinking, however, and the rise of the 'speakeasy' offered huge new opportunities for organized crime. Soon, cities both large and small became battlegrounds as various crime syndicates vied for control of the underground alcohol trade. In Mad Dogs With Guns, players form their own small gangs of fedora-wearing, tommy gun-wielding gangsters and battle it out with their rivals. With numerous different gangs to choose from, including cops and G-men, a fully integrated campaign system, and rules for special situations such as car chases, the game offers a huge variety of tactical challenges. Bribe public officials, attend a gangland funeral, but always watch your back – there is always another gang waiting to poach your territory...

Paul Moorcraft has covered most of the wars of the last quarter of the 20th century on four continents. An experienced war correspondent, he shows here the other - often lighter - side of the major conflicts of our time, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. More interested in flying buttresses than flying bullets, the dangers are underplayed as the writer is constantly distracted by bizarre characters, strange places, odd traditions, disturbing food and his constant habit of being sucked into eccentric debate with the locals.
