"Few men have as much experience of Fiordland as John Anderson. After sixty-three trips, he is uniquely qualified to write of an area of New Zealand few have ever visited." This is a detailed account of the author's experiences in pursuit of wapiti. "He can look back at the golden years, the frustrations of dealing with a bureaucracy out of control, the attempts at wildlife management, and the destruction caused by the venison recovery industry (feral deer hunting)." After considering the history of the wapiti herd, and something of the history of the native fauna, Anderson makes a case for maintaining a managed trophy herd of wapiti in Fiordland. Chapters include: An historical perspective; A question of ethics; Into the Lugar Burn; Using the dart gun; The bureaucrats; The secrets of the Worsley; So you know all about it; Bucking the system; An appointment in Canyon Creek; Lake Shirley and the Juno River; A son of the mist; Battersby's Bull; The wild natives of the River Bull; Wapiti Lake and the Stillwater River; The children of the mist; Into the heartland - the Edith River; Back from extinction - eastern woodland elk.
