Top edge a little dusty but very good in slightly used dust-wrapper. The product of many years' research, this is the largely untold story of women and big game hunting. Contains an extensive bibliography. "WINNER OF THE 2005 CIC LITERARY AWARD. Fiona Capstick has spent years delving into diaries, journals, articles and books written by or about the world's many unsung huntresses, tracing their role in hunting from the early gatherer-hunter societies, to the incredible accounts of the sportswomen who made their mark in the world's hunting fields in the late 19th century." "All of the huntresses Fiona has featured exhibited the kind of strong reliance that commanded respect in the field. These fascinating women recorded many of their adventures in several books, taking us on amazing trips to Africa, Alaska and the freezing world of the Caucasus region as they stalked, hunted and observed, living with a new joy and confidence in themselves and life. This book contains such grand stories that one is captivated into reading them over and over again." Joan Vernon Gordon "Superbly written with considerable historical content, this book will appeal to all today's hunters and huntresses, armchair adventurers and the general reading public, and will likely head the bestseller list." (Brian Marsh). Bookseller Inventory # 31826
