Game in the Desert
This book-a reprint of the original 1939 edition-offers an in-depth look at some of the most sought-after game in the American Southwest and northern Mexico. Included are black and grizzly bears, doves, elk and deer, and even Mexican jaguars. Each animal-dedicated chapter details habitat and behavior and includes stories from the author. Based mostly on the author's observations of game while on the hunt or just exploring in the field, this classic is a departure from natural history books that "are simply a rehash of other books that are a rehash of still other books."
