On Hunting book cover
On Hunting
Roger Scruton - 2002-12-06 (first published in 1998)
Goodreads Rating
Discover the complexities of humanity's love, fear, pursuit, and fleeing of other species through the lens of fox-hunting.

Experience the mysteries of country life and discover the love of animals that prevails over the pursuit of them. A plea for tolerance toward a sport where nature is the center of the drama.

Roger Scrutons 1998 book “On Hunting” was the most beautifully written eulogy of the countryside and his emotions on hearing the sound of the hunting horn. A great loss to independent thinking. Condolences to his family      source
