GAME BIRDS - A Celebration of North American Upland Birds is a photo driven coffee table book and the most ambitious title ever attempted on gallinaceous birds, or as they are more commonly known, game birds. Gary Kramer is likely the only individual to have ever photographed and published images of all 34 game birds found in the United States and Canada, making this book a milestone achievement. The book takes readers on a visual journey across North America in search of turkey, pheasant, quail, grouse, partridge, ptarmigan, prairie-chickens and the game birds of Hawaii. Among these are two on the brink of extinction, the masked bobwhite and Attwater's prairie-chicken, those that are struggling such as the Gunnison sage-grouse and lesser prairie-chicken; abundant species that have been introduced from foreign lands, including the chukar and ring-necked pheasant; as well as species that are widespread due to successful wildlife management efforts, like the wild turkey. The photographs capture the range and diversity of their beauty and behavior, from the widespread and familiar northern bobwhite, to the intricately marked Montezuma quail and the seldom photographed Himalayan snowcock. The narrative is delivered with accuracy - each chapter has been reviewed by the top experts in the field. If you are an avid hunter or an armchair reader, GAME BIRDS will provide you with range maps, natural history and conservation status and a photographic insight seldom revealed. Coffee table book, hardcover, 256 pages, 12" X 9 1/4", 384 color photographs, 26 range maps, Author signed books: $65 (includes shipping/handling) in the US.
