Excerpt from The Wilderness Hunter

In hunting, the finding and killing of the game is after all but a part Of the whole. The free, self-reliant, adventurous life, with its rugged and stalwart democracy; the wild surroundings, the grand beauty of the scenery, the chance to study the ways and habits of the woodland creatures - all these unite to give to the career of the wilderness hunter its peculiar charm. The chase is among the best Of all national pastimes; it cultivates that vigorous manliness for the lack Of which in a nation, as in an individual, the possession of no other qualities can possibly atone.

This book is full of wonderful stories about memorable hunts that Theodore Roosevelt had taken over the years. He describes hunting every different kind of large game in North America. A great read for anyone that enjoys Teddy's writings or an excellent starter for someone new to his works.
