In Defense of Hunting: Yesterday and Today

by

In Defense of Hunting: Yesterday and Today Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In prose that vibrantly evokes the beauty and the cruelty of nature--and the archetypal nature of the hunt--James Swan argues that acknowledging the instinctual roots of the hunt is vital to repairing our modern alienation from nature and crucial to our understanding of our basic human needs. Swan is also the author of Nature as Teacher and Healer.

Synopsis:

An acclaimed nature writer and environmentalist delivers an eloquent and provocative pro-hunting exploration of the primal impulse to hunt and its endangered value in modern society.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 277-282) and index.
