Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Without apology, the voices here speak of the verities of the hunt, our connections to the land, and the ethics of blood sport, with essays by the best writers in the field: Edward Abbey, Rick Bass, Tom Beck, Jimmy Carter, Jim Fergus, Barry Lopez, Peter Matthiessen, Tom McGuane, Richard K. Nelson, David Peterson, and Terry Tempest Williams.

Synopsis:

The controversial book that has redefined ethical hunting. David Petersen, himself a committed hunter who has long debated the ethics of blood sport, has now assembled a group of writers to share their experiences in the field and tell why they became hunters and how hunting protects wildlife and habitats.

About the Author

David Peterson lives in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado.
