Overview

Hunting the Grisly and Other Sketches brilliantly captures the thrill of the chase as Theodore Roosevelt, the man the teddy bear is named after, 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 in the vein of Bill Bryson�s A Walk in the Woods. 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.<%END%>

About the Author:
Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) went from a fragile child in New York City to Rough Rider, U.S. president, American hero. One of the nation�s most beloved presidents, Theodore Roosevelt�s connection to nature continues to be seen today: 150 national forests, five national parks, and fifty-one wildlife refuges are a result of his conservation efforts.<%END%>
