KIRKUS REVIEW

For the sportsman happily plodding through his own particular preserve, these four informational round-ups of outdoor sport-fresh and salt water fishing, hunting and camping--by four authorities: Ted Janes, Henry Lyman, Clyde Ormond and Frank Woolner. Each subject is treated to an historical review and general prospects and procedures. Types of fish or game, equipment and methods, and in the case of the camping section, a ""how-to""--are given extensive, if not indepth attention. The hunting chapter includes a knowledgeable discussion of guns, use and care. Of necessity, there are omissions and too brief treatment of some areas (no brief six pages can do justice to the handling of a canoe; nor can one paragraph instruct one sufficiently in constructing a bake-hole). However, this is a competent introduction to field and stream for the neophyte or the experienced hunter who might like to switch from camping to chumming.
