From the Introduction "Any choice is bound to be invidious and a choice of poetry no more nor less than any other, but in this selection I have tried to evoke and capture the spirit and the moment of sport. Some better known verse I have left out; some less well known I have included. Some will miss their own favourites, but I hope that every reader will find in these pages some new delight, or find again one that had been forgotten for too long."  The three major topics are Hunting, Fishing and Shooting, Authors in the Hunting section include Warburton, Ogilvie, Whyte-Melville and others. Illustrations are black & white drawings, resembling old woodcuts. 133 pages, book is as new.
