Described in the editor's preface as a 'naturalist-sportsman' Charles St John was a close observer of nature as well as a hunter. He wrote "I cannot say that my taste leads me to rejoice in the slaughter of a large bag of grouse in one day". His description of Highland Wildlife during his time living in the North East of Scotland, while primarily intended for his fellow sportmen, contribute to natural history by being a plain statement of what came under his own vigilant eyes. All he wrote is readable because it had its source in knowledge & experience. The book is illustrated by fifty illustrations including thirty reproduced in colour. Publisher's adverts. to the rear.
