The new book “A Season on the Allegheny” by Warren County author Robert Hilliard is now in print and a book signing event will be held at the Forest County Visitor Center on Saturday, June 9th from 10:00 am till 2:00 pm.

This is a rollicking account of a year spent hunting on the Allegheny National Forest.  Hilliard tracks down more than deer, turkey and grouse – he captures the forest’s magnificent past and finds the people who are still making history on the Allegheny today.  He also pursues the many controversies that swirl around Pennsylvania’s only National Forest, including anti-logging and anti-drilling protests, Wilderness designations and eco-terrorism.

In addition, “A Season on the Allegheny” uncovers the quiet but powerful impact of hunter-based conservation groups.  It demonstrates that from habitat improvements to legal aid, these grups have spent countless hours and dollars making the Allegheny National Forest a better place for both animals and people.

This book is for anyone who loves hunting, the Allegheny National Forest, or just entertaining books about the outdoors.
