A Vegetarian's Hunt for Sustenance

by Tovar Cerulli

Tovar Cerulli seems an unlikely hunter. Although he spent his childhood summers in New England fishing for trout and hunting for bullfrogs, he left such pursuits behind in his teens and, in an attempt to avoid killing and harming animals, became a vegan by the age of twenty.

by Edouard-Pierre Decoster

This book by French big-game hunter Edouard-Pierre Decoster is one of the most unusual hunting books I’ve ever read. Though they are presented in loosely chronological order, each chapter is a standalone vignette from the author’s forty years of hunting in Cameroon, C.A.R., Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and other parts of Africa. The stories are far more than tales of animals killed—in the tradition of Hemingway, they are poignant tales of life, death, and survival on a continent where, as one of his trackers puts it, “the earth is often the color of blood.”
