Green cloth, gilt stalker motif to Scotland, covering some two and three-quarter million acres, number less than 190, whereas there are several hundred other properties - sheep ground, grouse moor, etc. - on which the red deer is pursued with a rifle". In this book, Kenneth Whitehead "has covered all these properties, not only in Scotland, but also in England and Ireland, and he has compiled a body of information that is of vital interest to everyone interested in stalking". "In addition to providing such statistical data as acreages and numbers of deer killed annually, there is a complete list of all the best recorded weights and heads for each property. Historical data is also included as well as a description of the stalking grounds and records of any park bloodintroduced". "Mr. Whitehead's book, which is fully indexed, is without doubt the standard work on the subject and is unlikely to be replaced for very many years to come".
