100 Years of Hunting: The Ultimate Tribute to Our Hunting Heritage

by Voyageur Press Voyageur Press, Voyageur Press
     
 

For most of the millions of Americans who go afield in pursuit of game in the 1990s, a hunt is about so much more than the act of hunting. It’s also about connecting to the land, bonding with your hunting companions, and respecting the spirit of the chase. The core of the hunt, the very reasons that people go afield, is the same today as it was in 1900.

Overview

For most of the millions of Americans who go afield in pursuit of game in the 1990s, a hunt is about so much more than the act of hunting. It’s also about connecting to the land, bonding with your hunting companions, and respecting the spirit of the chase. The core of the hunt, the very reasons that people go afield, is the same today as it was in 1900. Tradition. And tradition is what this book is about. A striking collection of stories and artwork, this is a celebration of our hunting heritage that’s sure to evoke your own special hunting memories. "100 Years of Hunting" includes compelling stories about hunting game from the ever-popular whitetail to mule deer, elk, grizzly bear, bighorn sheep, grouse, ducks, pheasant, and more from the past 100 years. These engaging narratives are from such legends as Grover Cleveland, Zane Grey, Archibald Rutledge, Gordon MacQuarrie, Patrick F. McManus, Ernest Hemingway, and Robert Ruark. These hunting tales are paired with great artwork, including outstanding wildlife photography, hunting collectibles, sporting paintings, period ads, and historical images.
