About the Author
Burton Spiller is the recognized authority on grouse--"king of the upland game birds." He was born in Maine in 1886 and died in 1973. During his life, he was somewhat of a Renaissance Man--he made and played violins, grew prize-winning flowers, wrote plays, short stories, and poems, was a mechanic, a welder, and served in World War II making submarines. Derrydale first published him in 1935, and his books continue to be considered the classics of all grouse hunting literature.
