Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this powerful collection, classics including Guy de Maupassants “Love” and Ernest Hemingways “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” join contemporary offerings such as Wallace Stegners “The Blue-Winged Teal,” “On the Antler” by E. Annie Proulx, and David Quammens “Walking Out.” From duck, goose, and grouse hunting to stiffer contests for deer, elk, moose, bear, and big African game—in one case, even a manhunt—all kinds of hunting and all possible outcomes, from the comic to the heartwarming, disastrous, or bizarre, are explored. Against the backdrop of ocean, frozen swamp, forest, or jungle, we see the deep bonds between father and son, huntsman and dog, man and nature being forged or shattered as the line between sport and survival blurs, and the hunter risks becoming prey to weather, to circumstance, or to human and animal foes.

Synopsis:

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.
