You are warmly invited to the Dunedin launch of Dark Forest Deep Sea by Richard Hall.

“In the wild there is an element that cannot be seen, tasted, heard or smelt – it can only be felt, and it is a feeling of enchantment.”

From catching eels in a river on a moonlit night to spearfishing on a single breath in the Pacific Ocean to stalking deer in silent forests – scientist Richard Hall reflects on both solitude and mateship, our relationship with landscape and nature, and how the wilderness gives him what he needs to live in the world. This is the human story of hunting, exploring the emotions and sensations at the heart of the experience, and the reasons for doing it.

Where: University Book Shop, 378 Great King St
RSVP: bronwynw@unibooks.co.nz - not necessary to attend but helpful for catering!
