Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The drama, danger, and energy of the hunt are unsurpassed as inspiration for short-story writers, many of whom have been fine hunters themselves. This collection spans the full range of the 20th century and boasts many prize-winning authors and stories, including Wallace Stegners “The Blue-Winged Teal,” Thomas McGuanes “Sportsmen,” and Lawrence Sargent Halls “The Ledge,” as well as Ernest Hemingways “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” and riveting selections by David Quammen, Rick Bass, and E. Annie Proulx. A lighter side of the sport is provided in Irvin S. Cobbs “The Plural of Moose Is Mise,” while T. Coraghessan Boyles “Big Game” plays wickedly on the Hemingway classic.
