This is an auction for WILD BOAR: PIG-HUNTING IN NEW ZEALAND, by Philip Holden.

Two of Holden's earlier books, published together in a single volume.

The two books are:





"Pig hunting has long been the most popular, and dangerous, form of hunting in New Zealand. Ever since early European explorers introduced pigs to this country for food, man has been waging war on one of the world's most destructive game animals. The wild pig is resourceful, hardy, intelligent, adaptable, formidable and elusive, destroying pasture lands, raiding crops and preying on stock. But the pig also provides some of the best sport available to the New Zealand hunter. A wild boar, weighing up to 500 pounds and with chisel-like teeth and fearsome tusks, makes a worthy opponent. Many men have been attacked and hundreds of dogs, willing to give all for their masters, have been killed by wild pigs in New Zealand. The pursuit of the wild pig generates some of the most exciting hunting stories, and nobody recounts a yarn better than Philip Holden. IN SEARCH OF THE WILD PIG examines the characteristics and behaviour of wild pigs and delves into history of pigs and pig hunting, discussing in detail the distribution of pigs in New Zealand. As always, Philip Holden provides thrilling, exuberant and at times gutsy reading, complemented by over 50 photographs."
