Account of Plummer's development as a hunter, from boyhood exploits with lurcher and terrier to adulthood, with many interesting digressions. Includes chapters on cock-fighting and bird-catching, cooking and eating badgers, foxes and rats, hawks and hawking. Although Plummer often comes across as bonkers, many of his apparently eccentric actions, such as badger eating or covering himself with a concoction of badger grease and herbs, were experiments to establish the plausibility of claims made by other writers. Being perpetually surrounded by people incapable of sharing this pioneering spirit of enquiry seems the source of his restlessness and the driving force behind the hundreds of books he wrote in his lifetime. This is not to say that Plummer did not have deep problems, as he himself describes in Hancock's My Life with Lurchers.

Bohane ist ein heimtückischer, mörderischer, intriganter Ort – und verdammt sexy. Eine Stadt voll brutaler Killer und Ganoven. Das Buch erzählt von einem Bandenführer, dessen Herrschaft zu Ende geht, und ist anders als alles, was Sie zuvor gelesen haben. Ein Buch für alle, die eine grellbunte, vergnügte Zeit verbringen wollen. Die einst bedeutende Stadt Bohane an der irischen Westküste liegt darnieder. Es herrschen Gewalt und Chaos, die Clans sind gespalten. Auch wenn noch ein wenig vom alten Glanz geblieben ist, findet das eigentliche Leben in den Slums und verwahrlosten Wohnblocks von Smoketown statt. Scheinbar seit Ewigkeiten steht alles unter der Kontrolle von Logan Hartnett, dem adretten Paten der Hartnett-Fancy-Gang. Aber es liegt Ärger in der Luft. Gerüchte gehen um, dass Logans Erzfeind Gant Broderick nach fünfundzwanzig Jahren zurück in der Stadt ist, und seine Schergen entwickeln auf einmal ihren ganz eigenen Ehrgeiz. Logans bessere Hälfte drängt ihn, alles aufzugeben und sich zurückzuziehen. Doch da kennt die Missus ihren Langen Lulatsch schlecht.
