Description:
This book brilliantly captures the thrill of the chase as Theodore Roosevelt recounts his North-American hunting adventures. Told in campfire-story spirit, it is a celebration of the great outdoors, a handbook on hunting, and a socio-historical record of the United States in the nineteenth century. Roosevelt relates the daring exploits of going up against North America's most cunning creatures, describing men disastrously getting caught in the traps they set, wolves overcoming one dog only to succumb to the pack, and horses escaping the wrath of the great grizzly.
