- Women past and present tell their own stories about hunting
- Themes of initiation, adventure, trophies, wilderness, food, family, and death
This anthology features outstanding writing by women hunters past and present. Included are popular authors Beryl Markham, Isak Dinesen, Annie Oakley, and others known to readers of outdoor writing--Grace Seton Thompson, Osa Johnson, Mary Jobe Akeley, Eleanor Pruitt Stewart. Still others--Agnes Herbert, Isabel Savory, Vivienne de Watteville, Paul (Paulina) Brandreth--received critical acclaim generations ago and deserve a modern audience.
An introduction to the history of women hunters provides a context for the stories: "Women hunt for the same reasons men generally do, and derive the same sorts of satisfaction from hunting. And regardless of the sex of the hunter, every hunt begins with a stalk and ends with a story."
