Thus writes ecologist Paul Shepard in his Introduction to this important book, now published for the first time in the English language. Although published in Lisbon in 1942, its insights into anthropology and ecology make it very timely, and its publication is a significant scientific and literary event.

In addition to the Introduction by Dr. Shepard, which describes in detail Ortegas anticipation of the recent developments in bringing the social and natural sciences together, the book includes a Preface by the translator, Howard B. Wescott, who sketches Ortegas life and work, and a set of superb drawings made especially for this edition, depicting the drama of the hunt through the ages.
