Summary
"Elephant. Bear. Moose. Rhinoceros. Buffalo. Lion. Since prehistoric times man has hunted. An elemental part of life, seeking out and overpowering large, strong, and fast animals has been a pivotal part of human evolution. In later times, when hunting for food wasn't necessary, man still tracked down his prey. Following an instinct for adventure, for the thrill of defeating formidable opponents, man hunted. Now, for the forty million Americans who hunt, here is the perfect companion. The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told is a collection of true hunting tales, told by some of the most courageous and clever sportsmen. The quest for adventure has touched all these writers, who convey the drama, tension, stamina, and sheer thrill of tracking down game. Included here are the experiences of Teddy Roosevelt in "The Wilderness Hunter," of Jack O'Connor in "The Leopard," of J.C. Rickhoff in "Wounded Lion in Kenya," of Frank C. Hibben in "The Last Stand of a Wily Jaguar," and of John "Pondoro" Taylor in "Buffalo," among others."--Www.skyhorsepublishing.com
