Brian Plummer holds forth on the subject of the rat, and his part in its downfall. With this book, "Brian Plummer scores again ...This is a view of rats by someone who has spent much of his life pursuing them, and it is both a serious book on rats and their habits and a further instalment of his own autobiography, as eccentric and entertaining as before - not to say macabre (...hunting rats in a maggot factory?) ...A fascinating book, invaluable to the hunter and terrier-owner." Chapters include: Black and brown rats - and never the twain shall meet; The Real McCoy - the brown rat; The hunting of the rat; Ferrets; Ratting dogs; The rat pits; Training a terrier to rat; Of rats and men; Mexborough, glorious Mexborough; The way south; The Midlands.
