Overview

Hunting and the American Imagination by Daniel Justin Herman

Herman (history, Central Washington U.) describes the formation of an Anglo-American ethnic identity based on hunting. Drawing upon sporting periodicals, travelers narratives, diaries, letters, and artwork, he explains how sport hunting grew in popularity during the 19th century among urban middle class men. He contends that hunting allowed these men to perceive themselves as identified with the Native Americans who they displaced. The text is accompanied throughout by b&w woodcuts, photographs, and other artwork depicting hunters.
