Here's the book every bookseller has longed for at one time or another, when asked for ""a book for a man"", ""a sportsman"", ""a business man with no hobbies"", etc. For any such man and many women this will fill the bill. Louis is just a stockbroker, a bit of a joke, who, left a fortune, sets out to try the world of sport, a world which takes him around the globe from his first chase with the Melton Mowbray to boar hunts, pig-sticking, polo, and angling. There is scarcely a sport he doesn't try, not in the heroic fashion of the novice who dashed in on the old grey mare and wins the National or the Derby or the Preakness. He has his troubles and his spills and the reader has plenty of fun at his expense, but Louis is a ""good fellah"" and before long it's a case of laughing with him and thoroughly enjoying all his games. Perfect for bon voyage baskets, hospital or host gifts.
