A gallery of sportsmen writers set forth the habits and distribution of animals and birds of North America. Large in format, there are full page illustrations in color by Francis Lee Jacques, staff artist of the American Museum of Natural History, capturing fauna for the hunter -- the greenwing teal, the pintail duck, the moose, antelope, grouse, elk, bears, doves, rabbits, goats, caribou, coyote, pheasants, mountain life, wolf, raccoon, deer and other creatures in their natural habitats. The mating of each species is discussed as well as tips for the marksman, with due deference to conservation. Many of the prey here described are nuisances in several areas of North America. The writer-hunters contribute much incidental information about the characteristics of each creature as they recount experiences in bagging game. Specialized luxury market.
