Excerpt from The Gamekeeper at Home: Sketches of Natural History and Rural Life Those who delight in roaming about amongst the fields and lanes, or have spent any time in a country house, can hardly have failed to notice the custodian of the woods and covers, or to observe that he is often something of a 'character.' The Gamekeeper forms, indeed, so prominent a figure in rural life as almost to demand some biographical record of his work and ways. From the man to the territories over which he bears sway - the meadows, woods, and streams - and to his subjects, their furred and feathered inhabitants, is a natural transition. The enemies against whom he wages incessant warfare - vermin, poachers, and trespassers - must, of course, be included in such a survey.
