'Jim Hunter and his fellow roo shooters are tall, lean men who range over the vast Australian wastes shooting kangaroos for meat and leather...The Roo Shooter follows the fortunes of Jim Hunter and of the white doe which it is his ambition' to capture alive. 'As the kangaroos move steadily across country along the instinctive paths chosen by their ancestors, so Jim moves after them, stopping at the occasional bush settlement for a beer and the companionship of men as lonely as himself.' (Source: dustjacket, 1968 edition)
