From the cover: “All the enthusiasm, drama, humour and excitement of country sports shooting and hunting are contained in these entertaining pages compiled by foremost field sportsman James Douglas.

Drawing on his thirty years of hunting experience in three continents, the author recalls many colourful events in a spellbinding collection of anecdotes that will delight like-minded outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. If evidence is needed to show the diversity provided by these hobbies then this lively book provides it — poachers, shooting parties, novice hunters, celebrities, champion shots, bemused outsiders and many others appear in tales set in all weathers, several countries and some secret locations.”
