This book captures the thrill of the chase as the author recounts his North-American hunting adventures. This is a celebration of the great outdoors, a handbook on hunting, and a socio-historical record of the United States in the nineteenth century.
The book offers practical tips on how to approach a new stream and techniques that appeal to several different kinds of fishing. The emphasis is on how to catch many different kinds of fish and it is not meant as an indepth guide to any one species.
