The Lost Art of the Sportsman is an exhaustive reference text and a compulsively addictive narrative from the turn of the 1900s.
Francis H. Buzzacott would find little in common with the hiker and camper of contemporary times. This is the American frontiersman at his best—no-holds-barred approach to sporting. And while some of the advice and information in The Lost Art of the Sportsman has undoubtedly been replaced with the advent of new technology, what’s surprising is just how much of the book is still essential advice and knowledge for the modern hunter, fisher, and camper.
Inside, you’ll learn: • What to bring on a fishing, hunting, or camping trip • Recipes for easy campfire meals • Hunting, fishing, and trapping tips for a variety of animals • How to deal with an emergency in a remote place • Clothing choices for a variety of situations • Tips and secrets for all varieties of firearms
Faithfully reproduced exactly how it was originally printed, The Lost Art of the Sportsman comes complete with hundreds of original pieces of line drawings and artwork, a true collector’s edition for hunters, fisherman, and campers alike.
This is Edward Breck's 1908 outdoor sports handbook, 'The Way of the Woods'. Originally intended for sportsmen in North-eastern Unites States and Canada, it has chapters on hunting cougars, grizzly bears, and other fauna native to that part of the world. It also deals with many other aspects of hunting from photography to trapping, making it ideal for anyone with an interest in the sport. Contents include: 'Cookery—Cooking-kits', 'Making Camp', 'Woodcraft', 'Nature Protection', 'Fishing', 'Sporting Firearms', 'Deer-hunting', 'Caribou-hunting', 'The Game of the North-west—Elk, Antelope, Mountain Sheep, Mountain Goat, Grizzle Bear, Cougar', 'Game Birds', 'Trapping', 'Photography', etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition complete with the original text and images.
