  • About Williams, Beth

    Beth Williams grew up in the countryside spending most of her time either working with the local gamekeeper or out exercising flat racers and hunters. Educated with degrees from York and Warwick Universities, her career years were mainly city based. Finally getting back to her roots, Beth and her husband bought a small estate where they established their own rough shoot. Unable to find any complete information on how to rear pheasants and partridges from scratch, Beth decided to put her research together in one book.
