KIRKUS REVIEW

A book of the Boone and Crockett Club published under the auspices of The National Collection of Heads and Horns of the New York Zoological Society. Edition is, in a sense, a sequel to Records of North American Big Game published by Prentiss N. Gray in 1932, more voluminous and comprehensive and data on twice as many trophies as recorded in that book -- only book of its kind published in North America. Chapters by authorities, Frick, Shoemaker, Phillips, Anthony, Fitz, Colby, Chanler, Coolidge, Clark, Allen, Webb, Harriman, Murie, Cabot, Weems, Seton, Freuchen, Bartlett, Roosevelt, etc., on all types of North American big game, stories and descriptions of hunting of big game. Chapters on ancestry, conservation, vanished game; rating of trophies, rifles and ammunition, hunting with bow and arrow; photography, moving, still, flashlight; care of trophies, in the field and mounted. Deer, moose, sheep, goat, bison, muskox, bear, puma, jaguar, walrus....all types of the family are covered. Compendium of useful facts for the big game hunter with good reading of actual exploits.
