About this title


The editor, himself a committed hunter, has assembled a distinguished group of writers, including Edward Abbey, Rick Bass, Jimmy Carter, A. B. Guthrie Jr., Jim Harrison, Barry Lopez, Peter Matthiessen, and Terry Tempest Williams. Expressing a sentiment most of these writers share, Richard K. Nelson writes in the book's introduction: "Hunting sharpens my awareness that I am an animal, not separate from my fellow creatures but twisted together with them in one great braidwork of life. Hunting brings me into the wild and brings the wild into me."


The collection of essays about hunting catches the eye at first for noted authors who turn up among its many contributors: from Peter Matthiesson is a beautifully written account of whaling in Greenland; Thomas McGuane offers vignettes about hunting in Montana; and novelist Jim Harrison writes a moving piece about poachers. But beyond the contributions by big names are many other thoughtful essays, including a controversial piece on bear hunting techniques that led the resignation of the two top editors at Outdoor Life magazine when the magazine's publisher spiked the article.
