(p.42) (p.43) 3. Earth, Fire, and Flesh

Laura A. Ogden

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter explains the tactics of territoriality, or the customs of gladesmen in ordering the landscape to stake and maintain claims of various natures. Several recurring refrains order the territory of the hunter’s landscape, including earth, fire, and flesh. Animals and humans emerge as collaborative agents of territory within these refrains by influencing the territorial practice of one another. The chapter also discusses the politics and economics of alligator hunting by investigating the market and regulatory frameworks that shape the supply and demand of the trade. It aims to evoke some of the tactile immediacy of the hunter’s landscape.

Keywords:   territoriality, gladesmen, hunter’s landscape, earth, fire, flesh, alligator hunting
