Description

An investigation into the current state of fox-hunting which aims to give a balanced and fair assessment of the facts, looking at the arguments of its advocates and opponents. The author looks at ancient rituals, superstitions and satanic legends of the hunt. Oddities of hunting terminology are explained along with the latest on etiquette and snobberies - such as the use Prince Charles made of pink elastic. Other topics discussed include adultery and the hunt, the function of gaudy orange foundation make-up and the "blooding" of children. Caroline Blackwood is co-author of "Darling, you shouldn't have gone to so much trouble"show more
