About Burton L. Spiller
Burton Spiller is the recognized authority on grouse-"king of the upland game birds." He was born in Maine in 1886 and died in 1973. During his life, he was somewhat of a Renaissance Man-he made and played violins, grew prize-winning flowers, wrote plays, short stories, and poems, was a mechanic, a welder, and served in World War II making submarines. Derrydale first published him in 1935, and his books continue to be considered the classics of all grouse hunting literature. John Gosselin lives in Fairfax, Vermont, near Burlington, where he is the founder and publisher of The Grouse Point Almanac magazine.
