Good Hunting: In the Pursuit of Big Game in the West

Written in the late nineteenth century and first published in Harper’s Round Table magazine in 1896, this collection of articles details turn-of-the-century America’s rugged wilderness. Good Hunting is an engaging read for those whose interests lie in hunting sports, and nature. Roosevelt, being the first president to begin many of the national park conservation programs in twentieth-century America, was a lover of the outdoors, and his writings are filled with notations and observations of the lands that he explored. From hunting elks, wolves, and bucks, Roosevelt provides stunning insight into some of northwestern America’s most well-known inhabitants.

Good Hunting is a fascinating historical portal through which we can view a celebrated sportsman, president, and keen observer of the outdoors. The seven chapters in this book range from classic hunting articles, memorable anecdotes from other outdoorsmen, and even a detailed piece on the specifics of ranching—a topic of much interest at the turn of the century.

This is a classic read for anyone wanting to learn more about a man who was so loved by a country, and to escape to the America of yesteryear.

* Entertaining climbing narrative about a destination many dream of visiting

* Perfect gift for adventure travelers and climbers alike

* Dorr’s story was featured on the Outdoor Life Network’s “Countdown to the 25 Most Dangerous Places”

Mount Kilimanjaro is sometimes called “Everyman’s Everest” because it is possible for a novice climber to reach the summit. And every year, more than 30,000 adventure tourists try. But for each person who goes to the mountain, there are thousands more who chat about it at cocktail parties, making plans to go…someday. That’s how Daniel Dorr got started: flirting with a beautiful brunette over hot cocoa and spouting impressive plans. Six months later, he was lying on the cold gravel trail at 18,000 feet, panting and hacking in the darkness.

Dorr is a typical marketing exec by day but, amped up by his re-acquaintance with a romantic interest, he gained the determination to pursue one of his lifelong dreams — summiting Kilimanjaro. When Dorr left behind the familiarity of his weekend-warrior lifestyle in Southern California to reach the top of the 19,340-foot peak, he didn’t realize he would cross a threshold to a new way of life. As he fondles expensive hi-tech gear, gets vaccinated for the jungle, travels local-style across East Africa, and vomits on top of the African continent, readers share in the rewards, both large and small, of reaching for personal fulfillment through adventure travel.
