'This is an elegantly produced compendium of sporting memories, anecdotes and observations which would stand up on its own - with the collaboration of Angela Humphreys and Rodger McPhail, it is truly a treasure.' Shooting Times
'Game Season is an enjoyable read in itself, but in these straitened times it might become a kitchen essential.' Country Life
'John Humphreys takes us on a ramble through the countryside in this charming book that contains a mixed bag of recollections, reminiscences, recitations and recipes. Chapters cover the pheasant and wildfowl as well as hare, rabbit, deer, trout and other game. Humphrey's wife, Angela, has concocted recipes using the animal or bird as the main ingredients, so readers can enjoy tales of rabbits before indulging in chilli con coney, or try out venison terrine once they have become endeared to the story of a stag. More adventurous cooks can crow about baking rook pie or pike 'n' prawns. Painting lifelike animals is something Rodger McPhail has got down to a fine art, and the illustrations in this book are no exception - running hare, crouching partridge, drifting salmon or goose on the wing - every depiction is detailed and animated. This combination of stories, recipes and illustrations makes for a fascinating read; like every game season, you wont want it to end.' The Field
