That way, it still puts people in control. Which we are not, not at this point. Because people are not omnipotent, nor do we have all the answers. And
that scares people.

For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and
wrong. - H. L. Mencken
Although written many years ago, Lady Chatterley's Lover has just been reissued by the
Grove Press, and this pictorial account of the day-to-day life of an English gamekeeper is
full of considerable interest to outdoor minded readers, as it contains many passages
on pheasant-raising, the apprehending of poachers, ways to control vermin, and other chores
and duties of the professional gamekeeper. Unfortunately, one is obliged to wade through
many pages of extraneous material in order to discover and  savour those sidelights
on the management of a midland shooting estate, and in this reviewer's opinion the book cannot
take the place of J. R. Miller's "Practical Gamekeeping."
     - Ed Zern, "Field and Stream" (Nov. 1959)
