Description

From its founding at the turn of the century to the present day, Outdoor Life has published renowned writers as well as unknowns -- anyone who had a good story to tell or valuable knowledge to impart. This anthology selects the cream of the crop, including timeless accounts from such authors as Zane Grey, Rex Beach, Townsend Whelan, Ben East, Jack O'Connor, Red Smith, Joe Brooks, Charley Elliott, and Byron Dalrymple, fleshed out with introductions and biographical sketches of the authors.Here are great hunting and fishing stories, gripping survival tales, and humorous stories that show the comical aspects of sport. Also included are articles that illuminate interesting corners of outdoor lore: the mythical expertise of Wild West gunmen, the history of the Kentucky rifle, the potentially fatal hallucination known as "early blur". A full-color insert features the stunning artwork that has graced the magazine over the decades. "The Best of Outdoor Life" illustrates to the reader not only the evolution of the magazine but the rich history of hunting and fishing in America. For all who love the wild, this book provides many hours of good reading and enjoyable browsing.show more
