Last Man in Paradise Synopsis

Last Man in Paradise describes the author’s experiences as a gamekeeper, wildfowler, driven game ‘Gun’ and in helping run a club shoot.

In an era when the divergence between town and country has never been greater, Last Man in Paradise provides a unique and entertaining view of many aspects of shooting in a rapidly changing world.
