The Big Game Hunters

£9.99

Product description

The story of the men who roamed Asia, Africa and North America in search of dangerous game is an extraordinary and epic saga. Drawing on contemporary accounts by celebrated hunters such as Walter Campbell, Alexander Forsyth and Alexander Kinloch in India and Roualeyn George Gordon Cumming, William Cotton Oswell and Frederick Courteney Selous in Africa, Michael Brander shows what drove them on despite dangers and hardships of every sort. He examines their close relationship with the animals they observed and hunted and concludes that the hunters had no lasting adverse effect on wildlife. Indeed they were among the first to draw attention to the dangers of uncontrolled poaching and over intensive farming which destroys the natural ecology of the wild.

Hard back book with dust jacket in very good condition.
