Gamekeeping is a way of life; a career of dedicated to the protection of game and the preservation of the countryside.  Unhappily many of the large estate owners who were able to afford a gamekeeper are no long able to do so and with the ever growing threat from the anti-country sports fraternity, there is a danger that one more tradition will fade away.

An attempt has been made to make the book as practical as possible so that those interested in gamekeeping as a career can study what is involved at first hand. .The rearing of pheasants, their management, the problems encountered and many other aspects are explained and discussed.

This is a book which shows first-hand the nature of gamekeeping as it is actually practiced. All details are given and no attempt is made to hide the true nature of life in the country and the harsh reality of keeping and hunting, as well as controlling vermin.

The end result is a fascinating account of the life of the gamekeeper and the training of a young man (or woman) in that career. It is part of the Field Sports Library.
