From Publishers Weekly
Far from a collection of gory tales about animal killing, this elegantly edited anthology is a tribute to the women who have forayed into the male-dominated world of hunting. With excerpts from novels, short stories and articles by thoughtful hunters and writers, including Beryl Markham, Annie Oakley and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, this volume celebrates nature, wildlife and visceral sensations. It also considers the subtle differences between men and women vis-à-vis their hunting styles, while acknowledging that "the essential appeal of the hunt, the drive to get back to nature and to basics... is not only ageless, it is surely also genderless." As intriguing as this book might be for hunters, it may be even more so for women who have never experienced the sensation of traveling through a forest with a gun, since reading about hunting lions at night, for example, offers a glimpse into a state of mind that's far from the ordinary.
