Theodore Roosevelt on Hunting (On)


Theodore Roosevelt on Hunting (On) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There have been few hunters as daring, as powerful, and as articulate as our twenty-sixth president, Theodore Roosevelt. From his ranching years in the Dakota Territory to his famous African adventures, Roosevelt's tales are unparalleled stories of the hunt. The best of them are collected here.

Of Roosevelt's many volumes on hunting and exploration, two reader favorites have always been Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail and African Game Trails, both excerpted here. During his ranching years, Roosevelt ranged far and wide, and his African trips were also famously bold. In all his expeditions, Roosevelt reveals in detail hunts that were incredible journeys of both pursuit and discovery, for wherever he went in the outdoors he assumed the dual roles of hunter and naturalist.

The hunts range from upland birds and waterfowl to prized big game animals like elk, bear, and sheep amid lofty peaks. There are goat pursuits among ice-glazed mountain spires and close encounters with grizzlies in the black timber. Roosevelt survives lion charges and buffalo attacks and stumbles on elephants.

From the peaks and plains of the American West to the vast and mysterious East African game fields and forests, Roosevelt shares his experiences and observations in irresistible prose.
