Hunting Life: Moments of truth

Book Author Peter Ryan
Rights Available World excl. NZ

Intrepid hunter, adventurer and writer Peter Ryan has produced yet another deeply satisfying collection of hunting tales, complemented by sensational imagery. His new collection Hunting Life – Moments of Truth delivers superbly written essays on hunting, the natural world and life in general from an acknowledged master of outdoor literature. In vivid detail Peter Ryan takes readers on his adventures – from the jagged peaks of New Zealand’s Southern Alps to the scorching deserts and steaming jungles of Africa. It is a world of tough professionals, eccentric characters and stunning game species, but also one rich in the pleasures of hunting, gun dogs and family. Hunting Life – Moments of Truth is illustrated by some of the finest outdoor artists and photographers working today.
In turn wildly adventurous and gently sentimental, these tales are, in Ryan’s own words, ‘a hymn to an old way of life, and a long love letter of sorts.’
