Relive Roosevelt's account of his African wanderings as an American hunter-naturalist. This superb volume includes over 100 photographs. drawings, and maps from the original publication, as well as bonus images not found in other editions.
Roosevelt and his son Kermit left New York in March 1909 and traversed Africa for nearly a year. Roosevelt's object was not that of a mere sportsman to accumulate personal souvenirs of his hunting skill. This was a serious scientific expedition to collect specimens of large and small game of Africa for the Smithsonian Institution-many of which can be found at the Smithsonian still to this day.
This edition of African Game Trails is a part of the B&C Classics series launched in 2012 by the Boone and Crockett Club. Each book in the series was authored by a member of B&C in the late 1800s or early 1900s and was hand-selected by a committee of vintage hunting literature experts. Readers will be taken back to a time when hunting trips didn’t happen over a weekend, but were adventures spanning weeks, months, even years.
