The spot of hunting is part of our national heritage and as such has been the sport of both Kings and commoners throughout the ages. 

The New Forest Hunt Club first became an organized society in 1781 and is still to the fore of the hunting world today.  In this fascinating book the author a member of the present day Hunt Club, studies the history and development of the New Forest Hunt form the early days until modern times. 

The struggles of the ware years, the depressions and other trails and tribulations, common to all the Hunts of the time, are described with compassion, as are the years when all was well.  The outstanding characters, both animal and hums, are vividly presented with the help of quotations and sections from sporting books and journals over the years. 

The many illustrations include old etchings and prints to give a true flavor of the early days, together with many splendid photographs, both modern and old, of the Hunt members, the meets, the hounds and horses and the New Forest itself. 

As an interesting and nostalgic look as the hunting past and present, this book will be loved by all hunting enthusiasts.
