Hunting Sketches (Google eBook)
A publication of 1865, Hunting Sketches by Anthony Trollope is a collection of essays discussing fox-hunting. The essays mostly comment on the motives behind hunting and the pleasures that arise form it. He further discusses the varying styles of hunting and which ones, according to him, are more successful. He further reflects on the psychology of a society in which, at times, people are forced to indulge in recreations that they otherwise do not enjoy.

This quick read by Anthony Trollope paints an quaint and humorous picture of fox hunting in rural Victorian England. It's a relatively short look at the cast of characters in a traditional fox hunt. Not my style of hunting, but an enjoyable read nonetheless. Read full review

I've enjoyed other works by Trollope, but this one is pure did-it-for-the-money.
