These folks wrote not of "How to shoot a deer or whatever." They wrote of special experiences outdoors that transcended the mere search for, and harvest of fish or fowl - experiences that carry value for anyone. And they wrote with wit and grace, humility and respect, and knowledge. Irving S. Cobb's wonderfully playful "The Plural of Moose is Mise" is here, as is Almet Jenks' eerie Classic "The Huntsman at the Gate" and J.A. Hunter's earthy sarcasm in "Client's, Brave and Otherwise".
Many like myself grew up reading these authors and their tales over and over because they never cease to amaze and delight, and the stories that thrilled the boys with adventure now impress the men with exquisite writing styles and a level of eloquence common then but terribly scarce today. Looking at the prices above, I can honestly say you can buy a book of diamonds for $1.65, and Ray Camp's "Hunting Trails" is that book.
This is the information from the description on the dust jacket and I will quote:
"... a generous collection of stories about hunters and their quarry. Raymond R. Camp has searched the entire literature of hunting, both fact and fiction, and chosen these prize examples. Some are serious, some hilarious, and some fanciful, and all are guaranteed to provide the fireside hunter with many hours of pleasure."
The editor, Raymond Camp, did indeed do a commendable job. Do you like to read about hunting? If so, buy this book and treasure it.
I also recommend anything written by the late Jack O'Connor.
