In New Zealand there is a strong link between hunting and the rural sector. When Graeme Marshall grew up our country had much closer links to the farming sector and more people lived in small rural service towns than is the case today. Consequently there was a strong culture of hunting with game available relatively close to centres of population. While the same situation still holds true in some regions, eg. rural Southland, where hunting is perceived as a legitimate and wholesome pastime, the same cannot be said for most of the larger centres, especially, where the urban sprawl has swallowed up much farmland.

However, while many young people grew up in families that enjoyed some form of hunting the author came from a non-hunting background. Whilst the family enjoyed a bit of fishing from time to time Graeme had to learn by "the seat of the pants," something he did by seeking out companions who were keen on the shooting sports and by reading books and magazines.

Marshall does not claim to be amongst the ranks of the "gun" hunters; far from it in fact. If there could be such a beast as an "average" hunter then he insists that he would qualify for that title. A burning ambition to "have a look over the next ridge" means that he is still exploring new places and continuing to provide food for family and friends. This book contains just a few stories of an adventurous life.
