"A most valuable and important book for the sporting life of the period, aptly described by Newton as "a biography of a real man that reads like a work of fiction." (Tooley) "This is not a work of fiction, for John Mytton, a rather inglorious character for a biography, was a hard-living, hard-drinking country squire of Halston, Shropshire, capable of the utmost physical endurance, and ready to accept any wager to walk, shoot or ride against any man. Many of his feats are recorded and graphically delineated, including the climax of his folly in setting his nightshirt on fire to cure a hiccough.'. (Martin Hardie) Abbey, Life, 385.
