In 1960, Dial published Frederic Remington's Own West and this makes a fine companion volume. The stories collected here are accounts by Remington of the various hunting expeditions and outdoor activities that absorbed the artist's away-from-the-asel zest. Many of these were published by Harper's Magazine in the 1890's and whether he was describing a canoeing trip or a rabbit hunt, Remington lingered over the details that the active and rugged love: dress, equipment, and the thrills (and occasional absurdities) of the chase. To be illustrated with Ramington's incomparable sketchings and paintings. An excellent gift selection as well as a book of special interest to libraries.
