"I don't regard nature as a spectator sport." -Ed Zern, 1985

Hunting is a serious business-but it's also about camaraderie, achievements and failures, seeing new places, and revisiting cherished ones. The true stories here feature a variety of game, in locations that range from high Yukon Territory mountain peaks to lowland swamps off of Mobile Bay, Alabama.

This is an indispensable volume for all lovers and students of the natural world. If your definition of home includes fields and marshes, creeks and river bottoms, plains and mountains, consider this required reading.

Industry Reviews

"Every once in a while, a book publisher comes up with a great concept for a series of books that deserve more than superficial recognition. Such a series is "The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told", anthologies that should win places on many bedside tables. On the long winter nights that lie ahead, such stories make great reading."--The Lexington County Chronicle "This is a book wrapped in adventure with nostalgia, a book with writing that both soothes and crackles. Besides being a solid volume on its own, it serves as a fine introduction to a variety of writers readers may pursue at length" -- St. Mary's Press "Few would quarrel with the selection of any of the 29 writers included as among the best in the game. ...The stories tell about the planning, the quests, the challenges, and the experiences that make hunting what it is. Hunters will find many passages that bring back recollections of their treasured moments in camp with good friends. Other stories may take readers to place and times they will visit only in their dreams" -- The Conservationist
