Product description

From Amazon

The collection of essays about hunting catches the eye at first for noted authors who turn up among its many contributors: from Peter Matthiesson is a beautifully written account of whaling in Greenland; Thomas McGuane offers vignettes about hunting in Montana; and novelist Jim Harrison writes a moving piece about poachers. But beyond the contributions by big names are many other thoughtful essays, including a controversial piece on bear hunting techniques that led the resignation of the two top editors at Outdoor Life magazine when the magazine's publisher spiked the article. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

These 41 essays, some written especially for this collection, are all by people who hunt or have hunted, and each considers the ethics involved "in a spirit more of soul-searching explication than defensive rebuttal." The editor's intent is to encourage understanding among nonhunters and to raise the consciousness of hunters as well. There are big names here?Edward Abbey, A.B. Guthrie Jr., Jimmy Carter, Thomas McGuane, Jim Fergus, and Ted Kerasote among them. Most write of the West and about deer; some talk about a nearly spiritual experience; some berate slob hunters who hurt the cause; many are environmentally knowledgeable; some, such as Stephen Bordio and Barry Lopez, are eloquent and lyrical; and some have turned away from hunting. If folks who don't hunt or those who are against hunting are willing to dip into this, they might take a step toward much-needed dialog and understanding. Public libraries everywhere could use this book to encourage such beginnings.?Roland C. Person, Southern Illinois Univ. Lib., Carbondale
