From the inside cover:
With Tales of a Rat-Hunting Man Brian Plummer scores again with a lively book on an unexpected subject. This is a view of rats by someone who has spent much of his life pursuing them, and it is both a serious book on rats and their habits and a further instalment of his own autobiography, as eccentric and entertaining as before - not to say macabre (how about hunting rats in a maggot factory?). He looks at the history of rats, both black and brown, and explains the part of rats in spreading plague, how the brown rat drove out the black rat from Europe, and takes us - with the Duke of Wellington - to visit the famous rat-pits of nineteenth century London. On the practical side, he discusses the use of ferrets and terriers in ratting, and deals with their training and entering. Nobody likes rats, but this is a fascinating book, invaluable to the hunter and terrier-owner.
