But hunting is also entwined with some of the more fraught aspects of American history, including the appropriation of Native American culture, egregious overhunting, Manifest Destiny, and even eugenics and Social Darwinism.In this sweeping, empathetic, and balanced book, historian Philip Dray explores how hunting has shaped the American psyche.
