In this absorbing memoir Duff Hart-Davis looks back over fifty years of watching, stalking and writing about deer. From his first experience of fallow in South-East England to his many sojourns among the reds of the Scottish Highlands, he has spent countless hours in the woods and on the hill, learning more with every excursion. Along the way he describes some memorable characters and conjures up images of the many famous Highland Forests, including an account of how he once accidentally shot two red deer with a single bullet. Again and again he captures the grace and mystery of his elusive quarry, for which like all true hunters he has an abiding love
