What People are Saying About This

Orville Vernon Burton

"Very original... a substantial contribution. Giltner has detailed wonderful vignettes of African Americans and elite white sportsmen hunting in the South. He takes the theme of common rights and shows how an elite white South restricted those rights and worked to take them from African Americans."
