Here is a book that only FIELD & STREAM could produce -- a book crammed with the living, pulsing adventure of 100 years of the great American outdoors. Here is a book that has been 60 years in the writing, including, as it does, the cream of all the great stories published in "America's No. 1 Sportsman's Magazine" since 1895. And here, in spec... more »ial sections, are eight pages of glowing, four-color reproductions of quaint FIELD & STREAM covers; 16 pages of old photos, drawings, and paintings from hundreds of issues; and 16 pages of ads that caught the eye of Dad and Granddad. There indeed is a treasure that every loved of fishing and hunting will want to keep and dip into time and time again, through the years to come.
What angler on a crowded modern stream hasn't wondered what fishing REALLY was like back in the days when the cold forest waters were full of trout that had never seen a hook? Or what hunting was REALLY like in the game-filled West that was ruled by such a men as Wild Bill Hickok, Wyatt Earp, and "Judge" Roy Bean? Or dreamed of a time when wild turkeys roamed the east -- when there were moose and elk in the Adirondacks? Well, here are the colorful, exciting answers, brought to you by great storytellers who actually live their adventures at a time when our woods and waters were teeming with game and when nobody ever bothered to put up a "No Trespassing" sign.
Here is Zane Grey as a young man in the Rockies, starting death in the face. Here is a small boy fishing in the unmapped New York wilderness of 1848 -- with a menacing Indian in the background! Here are the bufalo, groude, pigeons, deer, bear in abundance -- and gamefish enough to fill any man's creel. Here is Irvin S. Cobb heaving his great bulk noisily through the Canadian brush on a "stillhunt" for moose -- and coming home to write one of the funniest outdoor stories of all time. Here is The Old Warden at his best, and the incomparable woodsman, Horace Kephart, with an Ozark bear story you won't soon forget. And Nash Buckingham in the dim Southern woods, with a wise old turkey as an adversary. James Oliver Curwood up against a critical situation in the North -- and reacting like a tenderfoot! John Taintor Foote with the touchingly funny story of a boy, a freckle-faced girl, and a shotgun -- an explosive combination if there ever was one. And, in more modern times, Corey Ford and Robert Ruark at their best.
Here, indeed, is the art of storytelling at it's finest -- 50 selections that are the very cream of the tens of thousands of articles published in FIELD & STREAM in the past 60 years.
THE FIELD & STREAM TREASURY -- truly the book of a lifetime -- has been put together as a labor of love by its editorees, men who are now proud to say, "This is our brest."« less
