(1981) 2000 new edition. 8vo (140 x 222mm). Ppiv,122. B/w illustrations by Martin Knowelden. Brown boards, spine titled in gilt.

Lepus the hare is hunted throughout his life; by beagler, falconer and lurcherman. A novel of the life of a hare and his trials and hardships at the hands of his pursuers. "The world of Lepus the hare is the world of the hunted, of the creature whose only refuge is in speed and agility. The Creator gave the hare speed and beauty, but condemned him to be forever pursued, and so Lepus is hunted by a variety of enemies from the day his doe brings him into the world - hounds, hawks, and lurchers - but one hunter in particular, Brennan, is obsessed by the black-spined hare. Just as Lepus becomes a legend among the hunters, so Brennan acquires a legendary lurcher, Czar, with a formidable reputation and it seems as though Brennan will achieve his object and take the hare who has so persistently eluded him". The book includes acute observations of natural history and country sports from this legendary field sports author and commentator.
