Item description for Minor Field Sports - Including Hunting, Dogs, Ferreting, Hawking, Trapping, Shooting, Fishing and Other Miscellaneous Activities by L. C. R. Cameron...

MINOR FIELD SPORTS by L. C. R. CAMERON

A book for the true countryman of all ages. First published in the early 1900s, now reprinted in a fine-quality hardback edition for a new generation. It will stir many nostalgic memories for older readers and teach younger ones some new and unusual methods of taking various kinds of quarry.

Its seven illustrated chapters cover 166 pages and include details and instructions on a fascinating variety of subjects, many of them now illegal. It's a truly readable book from a more innocent age when the country was a freer place. ***

We've reprinted this with genuine pleasure. It describes the sporting activities of a generation only just removed from ours but now seperated forever by new legislation and a change in attitudes amongst out-of-touch urbanites. My father described it as 'almost a diary of my country childhood'. It is without doubt the most interesting book we've ever sold and I defy anyone with even a passing interest in the countryside or field sports to be able to flick through it without becoming absorbed.

Reviews - What do customers think about Minor Field Sports - Including Hunting, Dogs, Ferreting, Hawking, Trapping, Shooting, Fishing and Other Miscellaneous Activities?

Minor Field Sports  Jun 20, 2005
What a wonderful little book. I believe it was written around 1900, when the countryside was a freer place. The contents bring back so many memories of my formative years in the English countryside. I have read other titles by this author who was a well known hunting man, but this is a book I can really identify with. He writes with a passion on all manner of country sports, many of them long vanished. Many of these pastimes will be new to most readers. Even I, who spent most of my boyhood free time hunting, stalking, fishing and ferreting, thought I could learn nothing new. That was until I discovered the authors interest and advice on such unusual pursuits as hawking insects with jackdaws, sniggling eels, beetle fighting, millipede racing, wiring pike, hedgehog hunting, squirrel hunting, netting sparrows, to name just a few. Of course there is much discussion of more recognisable field sports such as rabbit, badger and rat hunting,pigeon shooting, fox, hare and otter hunting etc but all are written about in such a manner as to stir many nostalgic memories in older readers such as myself, and also to teach younger ones some new and unusual methods of taking their quarry. I can thoroughly recommend this book and I am sure it will excite the interest of all true countrymen whatever their age.
