4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Arthur Digbee VINE VOICE on August 14, 2009
Format: Paperback
Marks taught for many years at a small college in a rural county in North Carolina. While there he also made an ethnographic study of hunting in this community. The richest parts of this book look at the racial, economic and social meaning of hunting in his study area. He also provides individual chapters for types of game, such as fox hunting, deer hunting, and small game hunting. Other parts provide background on the political and social history of hunting in the South, game regulations in North Carolina, and other such topics.

Several chapters are quite interesting. But he never pulls the whole book together effectively. The various research styles of the chapters also do not fit together well. They include a historical chapter based on secondary sources, a sociological chapter based on a survey and state data, and ethnographic chapters on particular groups of hunters.

The latter chapters are particularly frustrating, for Marks relies heavily on interviews reported verbatim over several pages. There is too little interpretation, and little attempt to bring together the views of multiple informants.

Still, there is ample good material here, depending on your particular interest.
