"Shrewdly perceptive, highly informative and drily amusing in equal proportions, Evan Mackenzie's book - first published in 1895 as In Grouseland, and now rather rare - is also astonishingly up to date. A century on, it seems remarkable that a Victorian sporting author should have been preoccupied with matters such as an Access to the Mountains Bill before parliament, the management of the grouse's heather habitat to promote numbers and minimise disease, and the increase in the red deer population. In the 1990's these very same topics are some of the most sensitive, urgent and widely discussed issues affecting field sports and land management in Scotland". (Colin McKelvie, in his Introduction). Chapters include: PART ONE: Cheap grouse shooting; Heather culture; Concerning grouse disease; The taking of shootings; Driving; The first roe; Shooting ladies; Shooting literature; Shooting tenants; A stalker's stories; A strange stag; A typical highland poacher; Grouse-moor inspection; Grouse-shooting leases; Remedy for grouse failure; Preparing for the Twelfth; The day before the Twelfth; Grouse-shooter's paraphernalia; Deer and deer stalking; In the deer forest. PART TWO: Letters from Glendower Shooting Lodge: - Description of moor and its surroundings; Keeper and dogs, crofters and poaching, two feminine poachers; Setters and pointers; Guns and gun makers; Treats of love making; The servants' ball, a retrospect, and many others. This retitled new edition is limited to 500 numbered copies. This is an out-of-series, un-numbered copy.
