Book of the Hunt is not about hunting; it's about being a Huntsman. It's about the Wisdom of the Hunt; the Holy Grail of True Manhood, sought, but never found, by the so-called "men's movement" of the early 1990s. This ancient Initiation Tradition has been set down in writing for the first time ever, but only after more than a decade and a half of careful consideration and consensus among the Brotherhood.

In the summer of 1448, when Sir Ralph Woderove is found murdered near his estate, not even his family mourns. A hard, vicious man of many quarrels, Sir Ralph could have been killed by almost anyone. And though the consensus is that his soul has surely gone to Hell, Sir Ralph will continue to infuriate his heirs in death through the grossly inequitable terms of his estate’s settlement. It falls to Dame Frevisse to escort Sir Ralph’s widow and daughter back to their manor, when another death occurs under questionable circumstances—making it clear that not all grievances have been laid to rest. And as family secrets are dragged out into the light, Dame Frevisse realizes that there is a murderer among them who will not rest until the Woderove legacy has been settled once and for all.

Man the Hunter is a collection of papers presented at a symposium on research done among the hunting and gathering peoples of the world. Ethnographic studies increasingly contribute substantial amounts of new data on hunter-gatherers and are rapidly changing our concept of Man the Hunter. Social anthropologists generally have been reappraising the basic concepts of descent, fi liation, residence, and group structure. This book presents new data on hunters and clarifi es a series of conceptual issues among social anthropologists as a necessary background to broader discussions with archaeologists, biologists, and students of human evolution.

Over two million American women hunt. By taking up weapons for the explicit purpose of killing, they are shattering one of Western culture's oldest and most firmly entrenched taboos. The image of a woman "armed and dangerous" is profoundly threatening to our collective psyche--and it is rejected by macho males and radical feminists alike. Woman the Hunter juxtaposes unsettlingly beautiful accounts of the author's own experiences hunting deer, antelope, and elk with an argument that builds on the work of thinkers from Aldo Leopold to Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Exploring how women and men relate to nature and violence, Mary Zeiss Stange demonstrates how false assumptions about women and about hunting permeate contemporary thought. Her book is a profound critique of our society's evasion of issues that make us uncomfortable, and it culminates in a surprising claim: that only by appreciating the value of hunting can we come to understand what it means to be human. Controversial and original, defying easy stereotypes,Woman the Hunter is sure to provoke strong reactions in almost every reader. "A moving, disturbing, and bold retelling of the myth of Diana for the late twentieth century that deftly turns around our assumptions about women's relationships to life, death, and the call of the wild." --Ruth Behar, author of The Vulnerable Observer "Heartfelt, powerful, and scholarly, Woman the Hunter torches two of the oldest myths of our culture: the aggressive male who destroys nature and the passive female who nurtures it. What Mary Zeiss Stange erects in their place--woman who don't shirk from participating in nature's cycles of life and death--is surely one of the saner paths toward a healthier earth." -- Ted Kerasote, author of Bloodties: Nature, Culture, and the Hunt "A thought-provoking and challenging read. You may not agree, but you won't be able to dismiss it." --Girlfriends'

One thing is for sure - I'm in for a wild ride. ~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~ “I have a plan. You mentioned your cabin in a post the other day, right? Why don’t you pick me up at my dorm room around midnight? Kidnap me. I’ll be outside in a T-shirt and my blue jogging shorts. Of course, I’ll have a gym bag with me with clean clothes in it for when we’re done. But you pull up in your jeep and ask if I need a ride or if I’m waiting on someone. Something like that so I know it’s you. Then, when I start to walk away, you follow me. I’ll drop my bag and start to run. I hope you can run, because you’ll have to catch me. Oh, and bring rope or tape, something to tie me up with, or else I might get away. “Still with me? I hope so, because I think you’re going to like where this is going. God, I want you to tear me apart! “Once you catch me, drag me kicking and screaming back to your jeep. Throw me in the back and tie me up so I can’t get away. And don’t forget my bag!”
