Peter Ryan’s writing and images have appeared in the world’s finest outdoor magazines – Gray’s Sporting Journal, the African Hunting Gazette, Fieldsports, Sporting Classics, Shooting Sportsman, Field and Game Australia and The Hunter’s Journal. His essays have been published in several languages.
Peter shares a small farm on New Zealand’s South Island with his wife, son and daughter.
His earlier books (Wild South and Hunting New Zealand) launched to critical and popular acclaim. His third (Hunting Life – Moments of Truth) launched in July 2021. Watch the trailer here.
Reflections from the jagged peaks of New Zealand’s Southern Alps to the scorching deserts and steaming jungles of Africa. In turn wildly adventurous and gently sentimental, these essays are, in Ryan’s own words, ‘a hymn to an old way of life, and a long love letter of sorts.’
