From the Publisher's Preface:

"Good Hunting" by Theodore Roosevelt offers a series of engaging sketches of outdoor life and big-game hunting in the West. The author makes us feel not only the zest of sport and adventure, but also insight into the habits and peculiarities of the remarkable animals which he describes. It is a field-book written by a true sportsman out of his own experiences. Its spirit reflects a better appreciation of the value of close observation of animal life. The elk, bear, goats, deer, and other animals which are described, represent the most remarkable large fauna of our country.

This series of articles upon big-game hunting was written for Harper's Round Table, and published therein in 1897. The picture of ranch-life appeared in Harper's Round Table in 1896. These articles are presented together in book form after consultation with the author.
