Craig Koshyk spent more than a decade traveling throughout North America and Europe in his desire to observe and photograph every breed of pointing dog, in action, in its native land. 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 travel log of an incredible journey.

They are all here: Braques, Epagneuls, Griffons, Shorthaired, Longhaired, Wirehaired and Curly-Haired pointing dogs from Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
