For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down - David Adams Richards For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down is Canadian fiction with a very Canadian setting and very Canadian characters. While this might be interesting for some, I didn't find myself particularly interested in the characters or their way of life. There certainly are redeeming messages and themes throughout the novel, but I didn't think Jerry Bines (the main character) was a strong archetype.

If you're a David Adams Richards fan, you'd probably enjoy For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down; I didn't though.
