Publisher Comments:

 
An ode to one man's enduring love affair with hunting, The Fragrance of Grass stands as a testament to Guy de la Valdene's deep affection for and abiding respect of the natural work and all its inhabitants.  Set in places as far afield as France and Montana, Saskatchewan and Florida, this beautifully written memoir is a treatise on dogs, birds, and wildlife; food, wine, and women.

The Fragrance of Grass is suffused with la Valdene's appreciation for and understanding of natural history along with his vast knowledge of centuries-old hunting traditions.  It is a walk through the decades of memories of fields and birds, friends and dogs that will be treasured by all true sportsmen.
