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.
