Me and my Double

аз и моята двуцевка

“Me and my Double” is not just a book about hunting. It opens our eyes to the new, leads us away from the noisy and dust-covered city, away to the roots, to nature and recovers the incomparable sensation of its beauty and uniqueness.
This makes the book interesting not only to hunters but also to anyone whose soul’s call for adventures has not been silenced by the powerful pressure of contemporary civilization. It is books just like this one that I would like see in Bulgaria. Written in a beautiful, rich language, valuable as literature in themselves and of interest to the public at large and to the young that we hope to attract to our hunting fellowship. This is the true way of hunting we hope to make them passionate about – noble, smart and beautiful. After reading a book of value, you would not leave it aside. Time and again, you would go back to it. This one is a book of this kind.

You may order it from here or from any online bookstore.
