From the author of the highly acclaimed Legendary Deer Camps, this complimentary volume profiles a dozen of America's greatest deer-hunting heroes.
Beginning with James Fenimore Cooper's legendary "Natty Bumppo" and ending with South Carolina's poet laureate, Archibald Rutledge, this book is an image-driven affair representing a rich blend of sporting art and the cultural, natural and literacy history of our great white-tailed deer hunting heritage.
Drawing from Native American culture, anthropology, fiction, art, history, literature, romance, adventure, travel accounts, natural history, conservation, deer biology and poetry, Legendary Deerslayers is the culmination of 25 years of research by the author.
Without a doubt, Legendary Deerslayers promises to be one of the greatest books every compiled on deer hunting and must-read for anyone who enjoys the excitement and the heritage involved with hunting the white-tailed deer.
