"I will read and cherish Facing the Hunter for its melancholy, joyful, hard-won wisdom on hunting, his love of the animals and the people who hunt them and the endangered, magnificent habitat of the Miramichi Valley. That is the genius of this book. Every ecosystem in this country should have defenders as eloquent and wise as David Adams Richards."
-The Globe and Mail
"Facing the Hunter effectively and stylishly articulates a view of hunting that arguably ought to be given a wider consideration by those who know little about it. For those whose views are aligned with Richards, it's a book for the comfort of the fireside and a decent dram."
"...a meditation by a thoughtful man who cares passionately about something that has helped define him as an artist."
"This wise and beautifully written book, full of stories of Richards' people and their ways in the Miramichi area of New Brunswick, and in other locales in that province, is an elegy for a vanishing way of life."
