Anna is trying to sort out her feeling for the local sheriff but Murder seems to keep getting in the way of her doing this.
First there is the body that is found in the Old Plantation/National Park Site bedroom. This is not a run of the mill tourist it is a well known man of a local family, and trussed up to look like he did more than just die.
Then there is the deer stand that Anna and her Deputy are trying to catch in use. Well Anna catches more than she barging for with this one.
After a few harrowing disasters and learning a lot about the history of the area I just couldn't stop listening and was disappointed that it ended.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
What I enjoy most about Anna Pigeon mysteries is Nevada Barr's ability to make the setting one of the book's main characters. Barr breaths life into the various locations of the National Park System that Anna, a District Ranger, has worked at throughout this series. The reader is given a back door glimpse into these often-exotic locations across the United States. In HUNTING SEASON we are granted a behind the scenes tour of Mississippi's Trace Natchez National Park. Anna investigates the death of a local man discovered in an historic settlement building. To add to the mystery the death appears to be the result of an alleged sex crime. Throughout her investigation Anna confronts family secrets kept hidden for many generations and a large dose of sexism and racism to keep her from discovering the real killer. But Anna's infamous perseverance eventually solves this mystery and the Trace Natchez is restored to safety. In her Anna Pigeon character Nevada Barr creates a mystery series that is a delight to read and HUNTING SEASON is no exception.

I do not find the lead character likeable. Ranger Pigeon has little sense of humor and typical left wing prejudices. One reviewer accurately charaterized this as her "NPR soapbox". Nevertheless I keep reading this series-I suppose due to Barr's story telling ability and my childhood love of our National Parks.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Of all the Anna Pigion books I have read, this is the worst. The charecters are shallow and stiff, the dialog stillted and meaningless, and the park is not well described and in no way seems like a place one would like to visit. This mystery seems to be a big "so what". Not nearly up to Ms Barr's best efforts.

This was not by favorite Nevada Barr, but only because I didn't find the Nachez Trace to be as interesting as some of the other parks visited in this series. But it was still very good. I think I enjoy these books so much because I identify with the character of Anna Pidgeon. I share many of her values and beliefs so she comes alive for me. Perhaps that is also the reason why some of the other reviewers don't like the books. Instead of criticizing the author's "NPR soapbox" writing, they need to understand that, as in real life, some characters express points of view that you, the reader, may not share. Hey, I am the way. If a character expresses views I don't agree with, I find myself liking that character less. Suffice it to say, I adore Anna and I hope she has many more adventures in National Parks all over the USA.

I have all Nevada Barr's books.
I discovered Anna Pidgeon while on a hiking trip in the Sierra (bought it in Bishop) and have waited eagerly for each new book. I love Barr's exquisite descriptions --those who have not read firestorm are in for a treat.
The sad truth is: Hunting Season is awful.
After forcing myself to chapter 3, I doubt I'll be able to continue reading it. From the beginning I have been wondering if Nevada herself wrote the book. It is extremely flat and coarse in plot, descriptions, metaphors, etc.
Consider the very poor simile of comparing the way an old lady utters of the word "poker" to that of a Nun saying "Sodomy." We are flying really low, no fine writing here.
Many descriptions make no sense--consider Anna and Clintus entrance into the grand mansion home of Doyce--Barr goes off to describe the big mess in supposedly a big room just beyond the portico entrance. Hello? Those big mansions have a foyer, and indeed Barr describes the landing on other floors.
There are so many examples of what is wrong and I am only on p.55 but I am too bored to go back to track them down. Yawn.
Hope this is only a glitch, but I'll check the next book carefully before I buy it.

This is the 3rd Anna Pigeon mystery I have read, the others were first Deep South, the second Liberty Falling and now Hunting Season. I think her writing is very well done and her novels keep my interest from the beginning and I keep on going if I have the time. This plot is well done, kept me guessing until the very end. I am now reading Firestorm and plan to read each of her mysteries.
Nevada Barr is great!

This book was EXCELLENT, much better than the last and very suspenseful. I haven't read a book in a long time that I couldn't put down until the end, but I couldn't rest until I got found out "who did it." The ending, while a surprise, was still believable and fit into the story well. Really, you need to buy this, it was great.
