Whitetail Rites of AutumnBook - 2003
A Focused Look at the Whitetail in Nature's Grandest Season
Whitetail enthusiasts familiar with the work of Charles J. Alsheimer don't have to be told of his extraordinary photography, captivating commentary, and extensive knowledge of whitetail behavior. For those of you discovering Alsheimer for the first time, be prepared to enter the world of the whitetail in a way previously unimaginable.
"Whitetail Rites of Autumn" contains page after page of incredible photography and Alsheimer's personal insights into every aspect of the whitetail's life. You will be entertained and informed as you walk through three seasons with Alsheimer and his whitetail subjects only to arrive at the grandest season of all - autumn. When the leaves turn crimson and the first frost of the year makes it appearance, the excitement of the season becomes nearly unbearable for both whitetail bucks and those who pursue them. No other season showcases the grandeur of America's favorite big-game animal more than autumn. And the nearly 200 color photos and Alsheimer's insight found in this book clearly shows why. It is a masterfully crafted book that provides those who long for the time when leaves turn color and drop, scrapes and rubs appear old logging roads, and honking geese fill the sky a much-appreciated reprieve from the long off-season.
