About this book

Fletcher's Game is a campaigning autobiography which combines a gripping story with thought-provoking views on the relationship between animals and those who eat them. In this new paperback edition, John Fletcher brings his acclaimed account of his lifelong involvement with deer right up to date. Why do stags' antlers fall off each spring and regrow with such astonishing rapidity? Why is the wild deer population now greater than at any time since the Middle Ages? If, as he was to discover, deer are so easy to domesticate and farm, why had nobody done so before?
