Originally published in 1925, this is a wonderful anthology of shooting writing, collecting excerpts from the best and the brightest shooting writers of their day. Full of humour, valuable information and some hauntingly beautiful poetry and writing about the joys of the field, this is an asset to any shooting man's library. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Read Country Books are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include - To the Reader - Dedicatory - The Boy - Guns - Powder and Shot - Kit and Gear - The Holiday - Companions - Fellow-Sportsmen - Dogs - The Moor - The Twelfth - The First - The Forest - Grouse - Blackgame - Partridges - Pheasants - Snipe - Woodcock - Duck - Hares - Rabbits - Geese and Swans - Various - The Rookery - Enemies and Friends - Red-Letter Days - Gamekeepers - Poachers - Meals - The Inn - The Kitchen - The Bookshelf - Recipes - Golden Rules - Yarns - Weather - The Deer Stalker - The Wildfowler - The Philosophy of it
