THE FIELD & STREAM TREASURY by The Editor of Field & Stream Magazine


Email this review


Sporting matters are abundantly taken care of by this selection of articles and stories -- and pictures -- that have appeared in the magazine. Opening with its first story, in 1896, about hunting the sharp tailed grouse in Minnesota, it ends up with Robert Ruark's account of quail raising and shooting and Corey Ford's spring salute to fisherman. In between are yarns, adventures and experiences that cover the country and Canada and Alaska -- and fill the sportsman's bag, or the fisherman's creel, with an elegant sufficiency of hunting and fishing lore. It goes back to Indians and buffalo and bear; it moves on to early motoring and Catskill hunting; it has an article on shotgunnery, taxidermy, shooting matches and anglermaniacs; and game of all kinds has its chance of appraisal. Zane Grey, James Oliver Curwood, Stewart Edward White, Irvin S. Cobb, Paul Brown, Archibald Rutledge, John Taintor Foote, the Buckinghams- these are some of the many fanciers of rod and reel and dog and gun. A bull's eye for the man who.....8 pages in color of covers from the magazine, 8 pages of black and whites, and 16 pages of half-tones. And a reasonable price.
