Hunter Adair is a real countryman, having been born and brought up on a farm, and has written a real 'country' book showing his love and understanding of the countryside. From a young age he was taught by his father, not only how to behave when walking over farm land, but also about the animals and birds and the laws relating to them when out hunting or shooting with dogs.

He tells many tales describing how his father worked and trained gundogs and how he dealt with poachers and describes the law as it is applied today. This book is also full of stories taken from a sporting solicitor's book published in 1901, with explanations of the old gaming laws put into layman's terms.

Before retirement Hunter found time to write articles for the Newcastle Journal, the Hexham Courant and the Northumberland Farming Magazine, about farming, wildlife, shooting, gundogs and the countryside. He wrote under the pen name 'The Dalesman'. He still runs the family farm and has written several very popular country books for both children and adults. Nearly all the photographs, drawings, and paintings used for the illustrations are done by himself.

He writes specifically about the laws and way of life relating to farming, wildlife, gundogs and the countryside - subjects about which he is very knowledgeable. He says that you learn something new there every day.
