Abstract:

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.

Braidwork of life. Hunting brings me into the wild and brings the wild into me."
