2005 0-7734-6288-0 In the year 1832 a Spanish press published a book on the hunting experience of a local gentleman. This book was intended to be a manual on how to hunt. We do not know the name of the author, only his initials: D. J. M. G. N. This vademecum is the product of many years of field work which started, according to the author, in 1772. It is rich in historical detail and overlooks nothing. The strength of the writer comes from an excellent knowledge of the Spanish country and forest that includes most of the flora and fauna known at that time. The narrative is so remarkable that even the modern man can learn about a past way of life with its technology and scientific observation still practised by many minimalists in search of the pure adventure.
