The Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury, Vermont has some good resources --maybe check their web site and email them for suggestions.
The UC Press also publishes the Oral History Review which sometimes includes articles on technique, etc..
There are lots of web sites, good and bad. Rudy Trubitt and f7sound.com, etc..

Sound will continue to travel somewhere close to 1130 ft/sec, wind will be an issue, and the proximity effect will remain in effect. There's plenty of solid information available on sound for film makers.
Most film school programs spend too little time on audio, leaving new directors and editors at a disadvantage. Trial and error are poor teachers. My advice is to get some books, and not just mine.
