This book gives an insight into the sporting life of a nineteenth century fox hunter, chronicling his experiences with horses, including buying a horse and embarking on a hunt. Waring (1833-1898) was an American sanitary engineer who designed sewer systems that kept domestic waste separate from storm runoff. He is credited with cleaning up an increasingly unsanitary New York City at the turn of the century.
