Just started reading (for the second time) Teddy Roosevelt's Hunting Trips of a Ranchman and Wilderness Hunter. And it's just as good the second time through. It provides an interesting look at hunting and attitudes of the late 1800's (how things have changed). While the prose at times certainly dates the writing, I think it also adds a bit of flavor not common in so many of today's books. I particularly like how he devotes entire chapters to a certain species of wild game, and describes how he hunted the animals. The descriptions of how the game taste really drives home the "why" of why people hunted back then. Plus, the book gives the reader a look into Teddy Roosevelt's thinking and behaviors which do not always align with the man as he is portrayed today. All-in-all a very good read for people interested in hunting stories from the past.
