Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Twins Max and Hannah learn about the history of the Chinese ring-necked pheasant and the tradition of hunting the birds in South Dakota
Max and Hannah are about to go on their first pheasant hunt. They have taken their safety course, and they can’t wait to get out into the field. But there is much they don’t know about the Chinese ring-necked pheasant, and the twins’ grandfather has plenty to teach them before they load their shotguns for the first time. The Mystery of the Pheasants tells the history of the South Dakota state bird, from its arrival from China, through its successful adaptation to the plains, and onto the traditions of hunting that are so important to state and the surrounding region. The Mystery of the Pheasants is suitable for a first-to-third grade reading level or for reading aloud to a younger audience.
