Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For hunters, listening to the accounts of kindred spirits recalling the drama and action that go with good days afield ranks among life's most pleasurable activities. Here, then, are some of the best hunting tales ever written, stories that sweep from charging elephants in the African bush to mountain goats in the mountain crags of the Rockies, from the gallant bird dogs of the Southern pinelands to the great Western hunts of Theodore Roosevelt.

There are 20 stories in this collection, and they capture the very soul of hunting. Included, among others, are:

A Tale of Three Lions by H. Rider Haggard--Elephant Friends and Foes by Carl E. Akeley--The Mountain Goat at Home by William T. Hornaday, Sc.D.--Old Tantrybogus by Ben Ames Williams--Buffalo Hunt On the Oregon Trail by Francis Parkman--The Forest and the Steppe by Ivan Turgenev--Bear Hunting in the Smokies by Horace Kephart--The Alaskan Grizzly by Harold McCracken--The Plural of Moose Is Mise by Irvin S. Cobb--The Warwick Woodlands by Frank Forester--Red Letter Days in British Columbia by Lieutenant Townsend Whelen--Bob White, Down 't Aberdeen by Nash Buckingham--Brant Shooting on Great South Bay by Edwin Main Post--That Twenty-Five Pound Gobbler by Archibald Rutledge--Journal of a Trapper by Osborne Russell--Hunting Trips of a Ranchman by Theodore Roosevelt

Settle into an armchair, and let the expedition begin.

Synopsis:

Two of the greatest pursuits, writing and hunting, meet in one choice volume
