Of Hunters and Men Summary

Of Hunters and Men: Some notes about hunting, Africa, and the future. by James Field

This book considers some of the human-originated problems that presently beset wildlife in sub-Saharan Africa and lightly touches on some of that continent's colonial history. It also considers some of the reasons why hunting should not always be regarded in a negative light. Data condensed from several sources shows how current influences are affecting Africa's animals and their habitat leading one to conclude that its extraordinary human population growth rate could soon lead to the destruction of the world's most precious wildlife in the not-so distant future and he puts forward some suggestions as to how the decline might be slowed.

About James Field

James Field found his love of Africa late in life. After a career with some of the world's largest financial institutions he became a deerstalker and developed a strong interest in wildlife conservation. Then, a decade ago, at a charitable event held to raise money to protect Africa's endangered rhinoceros population, he won an opportunity to visit Southern Africa for the first time. Through his many subsequent visits to explore sub-Saharan Africa as a conservationist and hunter he saw that much more needs to be done to arrest and rebalance the damage that humans are causing to the wildlife and its habitat. Only those who have spent time in Africa can truly appreciate how urgent this need is. He is a freelance writer for a number of UK and International fieldsports publications and lives in Surrey, England.
