Description

Pointing Dogs, Volume One: The Continentals by Craig Koshyk

364 Pages – Hardcover – First Edition (Limited Quantity)

Over a decade in the making, Pointing Dogs, Volume One: The Continentals is more than a rich collection of photographs. It is a definitive guide to the versatile gundog breeds of Continental Europe. It is an in-depth study of the history, development and current status of the pointing dog. And it is a remarkable travelog of an incredible journey. Written by a hunter for hunters, this volume provides detailed descriptions of all the pointing breeds from Continental Europe and it is illustrated with stunning images of hunting dogs doing what they were bred to do: hunt!

Pointing Dogs, Volume Two: The British and Irish Breeds by Craig Koshyk

364 Pages – Hardcover – First Edition (Limited Quantity)

In some ways, Pointing Dogs, Volume Two: The British and Irish Breeds picks up where Volume One left off by continuing to explore the various breeds of pointing dogs from a hunter’s perspective. Yet where Volume One serves as a reference book for dozens of breeds, Volume Two takes a much deeper dive into the storied history and evolution of some of the most influential of all the bird dogs: setters and pointers.

Author and photographer Craig Koshyk remained relentless in his pursuit of firsthand accounts of hunting, trialing, training, and raising these dogs. He translated historical texts and spoke with experts from around the world to gain a unique insight into the role that setters and pointers play in the pointing dog landscape. More than a decade’s worth of research has been compiled into this first-of-its-kind tome that will serve as a cornerstone of any sporting dog library.

This book travels well beyond the British Isles and provides a fascinating comparison of how these dogs are hunted and trialed in America, continental Europe, and beyond. Koshyk’s work transcends time as he explores the unique history of each breed, the current situation at home and abroad, and an honest but hopeful take on the future that lies ahead. Modern dog breeds are the product of people who remain tirelessly dedicated to them, and this book honors those who have worked to revive, restore, and improve each of these breeds for generations of hunters to come.
