For close on two centuries, books have been written about the hunting feats of men but very little has been published concerning the numerous women who hunted during this period. Fiona Capstick has spent years delving into diaries, journals, articles and books written by or about the world's many unsung huntresses, tracing their role in hunting from the early gatherer-hunter societies, to the incredible accounts of the sportswomen who made their mark in the world's hunting fields in the late 19th century. 384 pages with colour photographs, including a special colour feature of the ten recipients of the SCI Diana Award. Packed with illustrations that reveal the role of the female as a co-provider of food in prehistoric times right up to her role as international sport huntress in the new millennium. "All of the huntresses Fiona has featured exhibited the kind of strong self-reliance that commanded respect in the field. This book contains such grand stories that one is captivated into reading them over and over again." Joan Vernon Gordon.
