Hunter and Hunted

Relationships between Carnivores and People

Hunter and Hunted

Hans Kruuk, a life-long naturalist, tells the fascinating story of carnivores and humans' intricate relationships with them. The book is illustrated with specially commissioned drawings, and deals not only with the wild beauty of carnivores and their conservation, but also with the topics of furs and medicine, man-eaters and sheep-killers. Kruuk explains in simple terms the role of carnivores in nature, how they impact human life, art and literature, and how we instinctively respond to them and why.


 Reviews:

"[Hans Kruk] hits a literary home run with his latest book...this is a great book for anyone interested in carnivores and their role in our world." Serge Lariviere, Journal of Mammalogy

"Kruuk captures the essence of an apparent contradiction--why the animals we fear are so fascinating.... A pleasantly written, easy to read, scientifically sound work. Highly recommended." Choice
