Experience all the thrills and dangers of hunting big game as told
by writers who experienced them first-hand. Elephant. Bear. Moose.
Rhinoceros. Buffalo. Lion. Since prehistoric times man has hunted.
An elemental part of life, seeking out and overpowering large,
strong, and fast animals has been a pivotal part of human
evolution. In later times, when hunting for food wasn't necessary,
man still tracked down his prey. Following an instinct for
adventure, for the thrill of defeating formidable opponents, man
hunted. Now, for the forty million Americans who hunt, here is the
perfect companion. The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told is a
collection of true hunting tales, told by some of the most
courageous and clever sportsmen. The quest for adventure has
touched all these writers, who convey the drama, tension, stamina,
and sheer thrill of tracking down game. Included here are the
experiences of Teddy Roosevelt in "The Wilderness Hunter," of Jack
O'Connor in "The Leopard," of J. C. Rickhoff in "Wounded Lion in
Kenya," of Frank C. Hibben in "The Last Stand of a Wily Jaguar,"
and of John "Pondoro" Taylor in "Buffalo," among others. Collected
by a lifelong devotee of hunting literature, the stories here are
classics. In more than two dozen selections, the true experiences
of hunting a variety of animals are relayed by the most reliable
eyewitnesses: the hunters themselves. A must for all hunters and
armchair adventurers, The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told is a
real trophy. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range
