The daughter of a farmer, Josephine was brought up in the country as a true country lass. That lifestyle gave her an insight into the plight of some animals. After finding out about those that are treated cruelly during live export, and about foxes being chased and torn apart during hunts, Josephine soon realises that being a vegan is the best thing for her. Hunting and Country Girl tells the story not only of Josephine and her father, living in the countryside, but also those around them. In anecdotal style, we find out about the lives of many around Josephine and beyond, from animal-rights activists to psychics, even learning about Jack the Ripper's mysterious murders on the way. But at the heart of the story is always an enduring love for the countryside and all it has to offer us, and a reminder that we should protect it and nurture it as it nurtures us in return.
