Using a variety of sources (hunting treatises, assize books, manorial and ecclesiastical records, books of hours and literary collections) and pictures (which include the Emperor Maxmillian stag hunting, two ladies jousting, peasants rabbiting with ferrets and camouflage techniques such as disguising yourself as a woodcock), this book aims to bring to life the centrality of hunting to medieval societies, both as an economic necessity and as an expression of medieval humanity's sense of oneness with nature. Almond shows that all classes enjoyed hunting (in which he includes fishing, hawking and poaching) and women enjoyed it as well as men.
