'The diversity of hunts and pictures with sections on heroes, hunt staff, and 'nostalgia', cannot be faulted. Most of all readers will appreciate the knowledgeable, atmospheric captions written by a proper hunting journalist. 'Going Home' is a treat likely to feature prominently on many a sportsman's Christmas present list.' Country Life
'Jim Meads tells me that this is his last book of hunting photographs. At 77, he is hanging up his boots, putting away his camera and going home. Near the end of such an extraordinary career, this book is justifiably autobiographical. It is also another remarkable record of the hunting field s diversity throughout the UK and the American scene, where Jim won a warm following late in his career. His great love for the sport, its people, its hounds and horses, shines from the pictures which are testimony to his physical endurance as well as his technical skills.' Horse and Hound
