Following the success and popularity of The Deer Stalker's Bedside Book, Charles Smith-Jones has now produced a companion work, Between the Coverts, which will appeal to game shooters of every kind. It has something for everyone, whether experienced Shot or complete novice, and is presented in an easy, entertaining style laced with humour and wit. 

In it you will discover quirky and unusual facts and observations, all carefully researched. Throughout the author's great enthusiasm and affection for game shooting shines through, backed up with hard facts and helpful, sound advice. Interspersed throughout the text are an invaluable list of keeper's tips, anecdotes, shooting quotations and snippets of fascinating information. There is a welcome reappearance of tales from the fictional Glen Garron estate and we are also introduced to a previously unknown regiment, the Glamorgan Fusiliers, whose exploits and eccentricities will strike a particular chord for any reader with a military background, along with delightful vignettes by Will Garfit. 
You are bound to find something in the pages of this perfect bedside book for the shooting man or woman that you didn't know before, along with plenty more to inform, entertain and amuse. Should you be looking for a present to take to the host of your shooting day, look no further.
