Praise for David Adams Richards
"Richards displays a deep experience of the woods and of hunting. . . . He writes with easy authority . . . and leavens the mix with ghost stories and humour."

"Facing the Hunter" followed by "Incidents in the Life of Markus Paul"
"God Is" followed by "The Friends of Meager Fortune" and “Mercy amoung the Children”
I agree with him, that most people who criticize hunting, have probably never killed anything in their lives... yet they have no qualms about letter someone else do the killing for them.
I just love all the hunting tales, from a long gone era.
I guess we somehow forgot how rough life was, in some part of Canada, just a few decades ago. This book is good reminder.
A great read.
