Summary
  • Discusses hunters - individuals and groups - who defend and participate in hunting wild animals for entertainment or profit
  • "The author of three classics on human society. "The Proper Bostonians, "The Last Resorts," and "Who Killed Society?" here turns his attention to animal society or, more specifically, man-and-animal society. On television, on radio, in magazines, and in his syndicated newspaper column, Cleveland Amory has become the country's best-known spokesman for animals. Now, in his first book on the subject, one written after indefatigable research and with rare humor-which varies from light to satire to hot, searing irony-Amory describes man playing God for his own self-serving purposes, for, as the three parts of the book indicate, fun, money, and revenge. The book begins with what is still regarded as the most memorable single "spot" on the "Today" show-the saga of the Hunt-the-Hunters Hunt Club-and ends with a truly touching look at what is obviously Amory's favorite of all the creatures of the wild. Names are named here and intimate stories told, from those Amory calls "Big Shot" Teddy Roosevelt to "whaler-dealer" Aristotle Onassis. Animal societies too are named, and their stories told, including the societies whose idea of "conservation" is to sell more guns and ammunition. You will be fascinated by this book; at the same time, when you put it down, you will be angry. And you will never feel the same again about an animal head on the wall, a fur coat on your back, or the howl of coyote down the canyon"--Jacket
