Reviews

A powerful indictment of the grouse-shooting industry and its illegal shooting and propaganda war against the hen harrier. * the Guardian *
No other book this year put the cat amongst the pigeons (or rather, the game birds) like Avery's impassioned investigation into driven grouse shooting and its impact on moorland ecology. * The Times *
This is a book you must read whether or not you support such shooting. * Highland News Group *
Pacy and passionate, this is nature writing that insists you sit up and take note. -- Stephanie Cross * The Lady *
Mr Avery writes with a light touch and endearing self-depreciation. He's passionate (obsessed?) about the hen harrier. * Country Life *
