Memoirs of a Hunter

Experiences in Finland and Russia 1904-1930

Friedrich Remmler
Translated by Ingmar Remmler Edited by Martin
Hollinshead

Memoirs of a Hunter is an astonishing account of

hunting, trapping and hawking in Finland and Russia
between 1904 and
1930. Coming from a manuscript
lost for thirty-five years, this is a
staggering true-life
adventure of deep snow, dark forests and times and

places long since claimed by history: in Finland, lynx
are run down on
skis, in Tsarist Russia borzois are
matched against wolves, and below the
Ural Mountains
the reader is introduced to some of the most formidable

golden eagles ever employed in falconry. It’s a tale of
bear hunts and
of stalking seals out on frozen oceans,
of forgotten techniques, hardship
and danger.
Described in graphic detail and illustrated by renowned

Russian artist Vadim Gorbatov, this mesmerising
account will captivate
not only the hunter, but anyone
interested in wildlife and the outdoors.

‘Many know of Friedrich Remmler as the
first western master of eagles. But his Memoirs of a Hunter opens up an entire
lost world, so wild and brave it seems it could not be just a century ago.
Nobody interested in the history of hunting and lost adventures should miss this
book.’ Stephen Bodio

‘If you want to read about a time past that
will never be repeated and the adventures of not only Eagle hunting but bear and
wolf as well, this is a must read! This book is right up there with “Death in
the Long Grass” and the “Last Ivory Hunter” by Peter Capstick. Of particular
interest to me was the part of visiting the “Eagle market” in Orenburg. Now
there’s something you won’t see again!’ From a review by Michael Kuriga on NAFEX

‘Destined to become a classic.’
Paul
Morgan, Coch-y-Bonddu Books
Published by
The Fernhill
Press
‘An extraordinary book…stuff to make your
hair curl and pull the blankets over your head at night.’ Shooting Times, John
Humphreys (who obviously took Chapter Eight – The Wolf Howler – to bed!)

‘A fascinating, and perhaps unique, account.’ The Countryman’s Weekly

‘In a style both riveting and entertaining, Friedrich Remmler takes the
reader along on hunts at a time and place now lost to history. His adventures
are so unique and his writing so mesmerizing and descriptive, you will wish he
had written much more.’ The Safari Press, California

‘Memoirs of a Hunter opens up an entire
lost world, so wild and brave it seems it could not be just a century ago.
Nobody interested in the history of hunting and lost adventures should miss this
book.’ US author Steve Bodio

‘A lost gem.’ Steve Ford, The British
School of Falconry

‘If you want to read about a time past that will
never be repeated and the adventures of not only Eagle hunting but bear and wolf
as well, this is a must read! Of particular interest to me was the part of
visiting the “Eagle market” in Orenburg. Now there’s something you won’t see
again!’ From a review on the North American Falconry Exchange

And from
the International Falconry Forum…

‘I made the mistake of starting to
read it late on one night. I didn’t get to bed until
2am!’
