"Very original... a substantial contribution. Giltner has detailed wonderful vignettes of African Americans and elite white sportsmen hunting in the South. He takes the theme of common rights and shows how an elite white South restricted those rights and worked to take them from African Americans."

"Scott Giltner delivers an intriguing and thoughtful survey of sporting cultures and racial identity in the postbellum South... A provocative regional study that highlights the value of approaching the American past from a socio-environmental perspective."

"Hunting and Fishing provides a new perspective on the social history of the post-Civil War South, and the 'Notes' section alone is worth the price of the book."

"Intriguing study of rural southern black hunters and upper-class white sportsmen."

"Giltner provides new insight into turn-of-the-century southern race relations."

"Essential reading."
