Hunting: A New Zealand History

This rich and vivid, highly illustrated social history gives an insight into the world of the New Zealand hunter. Hunting is central to many New Zealanders' lives - whether it's to feed their families, earn a living or to explore the country's amazing wilderness. Hunting- A New Zealand history describes how hunting was essential to the successful colonization of this country. It has helped to build communities and families, and hunting knowledge has been handed down from generation to generation. Cutting across racial and class differences, hunting is intrinsic to the way New Zealanders view the natural world and the way we've experienced, closely observed and understood the bush. Hunting ties New Zealand to the world, yet the particular shape of hunting here makes it remarkably distinctive. If there is a 'national culture' in New Zealand, then hunting and hunters are at its core.

About the Author

Kate Hunter joined the History department at Victoria University of Wellington in 1995. As a keen tramper, it was not long before she ran into hunters in the New Zealand bush, and began meeting people who served her venison for dinner. With interests in the histories of rural life, cooking and eating it was only a matter of time before she learned to cook the perfect venison steak and began researching hunting in New Zealand. She lives in Upper Hutt with her husband and two children, both of whom know exactly where their food comes from.
