Robert T. Hilliard

Author Robert T. Hilliardabout this book: "A Season on the Allegheny" is the funny, insightful, and thought-provoking tale of a year spent exploring, hunting, and finding adventure on Pennsylvania's Allegheny National Forest. Author Robert Hilliard uses the time he spends prowling the half-million-acre forest to investigate the history, culture, and conservation ethic that places the Allegheny – like so many National Forests – among the special places that we love.

"A Season on the Allegheny" also examines the powerful positive influence of conservation groups such as the Ruffed Grouse Society, National Wild Turkey Federation, and Pheasants Forever. From the PF member who married his wife (in part) because she lived near the Allegheny National Forest to the lifelong conservationist whose memorial contributions went to create a wildlife food plot, Hilliard chronicles the passion that these outdoor enthusiasts have for wildlife on the Allegheny.

From the hilarious (discovering an overexposed couple in the bed of a pick-up truck) to the poignant (the Seneca Nation's loss of their revered land to the construction of the Kinzua Dam), "A Season on the Allegheny" scales literary heights that surpass the actual mountains in which it takes place.
