J. Y. Jones’s first book, One Man, One Rifle, One Land, was a book of note, and the fact that we have reprinted it three times is a sure sign of success in book publishing. Now in his follow-up book (his thirteenth book), he ventures beyond North America to hunt the big game of Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific. And no, there is no African hunting. Yet the variety of game being hunted is enormous, and this is a fact that few people realize—Asia rivals Africa in numbers of species of game animals.

The book is organized by game categories and starts with high-altitude game such as chamois, Asian and European ibex, bezoar, tur, and tahr. Practically all the animals in the book are free ranging, and all but a few come from their native range when they are available there. For those who like sheep and sheep hunting, included are two chapters on snow sheep, three on argalis, three on mouflon, three on urials, and two on blue sheep. That should be enough to keep any reader going for many long evenings of leisurely entertainment.

There is not just one subspecies of each game animal included, but sometimes several. For example, the chamois and ibex sections alone contain five chapters each, and every chapter deals with a separate subspecies. Using a similar format to One Man, One Rifle, One Land, this tome includes natural history and background; good quality photos of the animals in their habitat; and the icing on the cake, his own hunting experiences with each particular animal. As before, this new work by Dr. Jones is exhaustive in its scope.

This book, of course, is more than just a comprehensive survey of mountain game. Included are the giant red stags and maral, the two subspecies of roe deer, the small miniature deer such as water deer and muntjac, and all the sizes in between. There are 18 chapters covering the various deer categories, and that is without including Asian and European reindeer and moose, which add another four chapters. Next up is an array of gazelles, and then we have the wild cattle, bears, wolves, and boars. In all J. Y. Jones has collected 118 varieties of big game without ever having hunted in Africa, a feat never accomplished by anyone else, as far as we can discern.

    Lightspeed to Babylon

    "Captivating! Great imagery. Difficult to put down. Though fiction, the author's use of scientific fact combined with Biblical proclamations paints an entirely plausible picture of the earth's future. The alarm has once again been sounded. How will we respond?"

    Dad's Tackle Box

    "Fact-based, personal and loving recollection of a career-military father's life, as told from his adult son's perspective including keen insights developed after his father's death. I recommend this book, both for its military perspective reminiscent of The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy and for its characterization of the challenges growing up in the rural South during the twentieth century. This is one of several books I've read by Dr Jones, and I found it intensely captivating."

    Worship Not The Creature: Animal Rights And The Bible

    "Very rarely does a book come out that tackles such an important topic confronting our culture, an issue that is subtle and confounding to many. Dr. Jones does an insightful job of communicating the deception of the animal activist movement that is threatening the very essence of the Judeo-Christian worldview. This is the first book I have read that endeavors to present a true Biblical response to the animal rights agenda. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand this insidious movement and the Biblical viewpoint a Christian should have toward it."

    Worship Not The Creature: Animal Rights And The Bible

    ‘This book is so gripping that I found it difficult to put down. I have known Dr. Jones for many years as a physician, hunter, author, and close friend. He and his wife Linda were frequent guests in our home in Washington, D.C., when I was in the U.S. House of Representatives, attending the National Prayer Breakfast and State of the Union Address, among other activities. His beliefs are deep-seated and convincing. Anyone should find this read to be thought-provoking and intensely interesting.’

  • Blind Ambition by J.Y. Jones

    Blind Ambition by J.Y. Jones

    "If you like classic good versus evil themes like those revealed in the movie" Devils Advocate" with Al Pacino or Dan Browns' book " Angels and Demons" and the follow up movie with Tom Hanks, then you will really like Dr J.Y. Jones's excellent book, "Blind Ambition". Set in a coastal south Georgia town, the book theme sets two established ophthalmologists on a collision course of self realization and soul searching as angels and demons try to intervene and influence the turn of events.One doctor is a good man trying to help his clients and ends up being sued by a greedy doctor who is addicted to lots of money, ambition, fast women and drugs and does not care how he achieves his goals.Thickening the plot is a host of angels working for the good doctor and bevy of demons pushing the evil doctor to prevail at all costs. Does it help to pray? You bet it does as you listen in on the inter musings of the angels and demons. Then you realize that we all face similar conflicts as we make daily decisions that effect the events in our everyday lives, just like the characters in this great book. The book is a wonderful, entertaining read and would make a great movie! I highly recommend it! John Trussell"

  • One Man, One Rifle, One Land by J.Y. Jones

    One Man, One Rifle, One Land

    "I have really enjoyed this book. The hunting stories are real with no fluff or "made up" success and fabricated for entertainment value. Mr. Jones is not arrogant and brings reality to all of his hunts and this is a great reference for study of each of the animals he pursues. If you enjoy reading great hunting adventures or simply learning more about one of the species of big game on this continent, you will enjoy! This is a huge book and very well worth the money."
