Second Hand Book
Murphy’s Law & The Hunter | Ross Curtis | 1997 First Edition | $30 | Softcover | Good Condition
Throughout the book Murphy's Law is entwined. Like his contemporaries Ross always looked for the lighter side of an otherwise grim situation. His observations on the flora and fauna show his deep love of the mountains and the outdoor life. He describes the many aspects of a professional hunter's life as well as the unusual and often hilarious events they can and do occur. From early beginnings as a boy hunter learning the rudiments of deer stalking in the Buller Gorge, through training camp where the skills of the professional hunter were taught and on to the first hunting block in Malborough and later Canterbury. Ross weaves a very readable and enjoyable tale.
