Having received this for Christmas 1999 I could not put it down. Anyone familiar with the writing of Max Hastings from The Field will thoroughly enjoy this book. He covers a wide variety of subjects, from stalking through rough shooting to driven game (partridge, pheasant and grouse) as well as fishing (salmon and trout). This is the type of book that (a) you will recommend to other people, and (b) you will return to 'dip into' time and time again.
I will now find a copy of his earlier book 'Outside Days' !
