Show synopsis At last, the foolproof gift for all sportsmen! To celebrate its hundredth anniversary, Field & Stream collected a full and totally entertaining treasury of more than fifty great articles from its pages. The subjects are as diverse as the great outdoors itself: fishing -- from the pursuit of big game in the seas to fly-fishing for trout in mountain brooks; hunting -- from waterfowl and upland birds to the dangerous game of Africa; dogs; camping; and much more. The selections include most of the famous sporting writers of the past century -- such superb older writers as Zane Grey, Robert Ruark, Ed Zern, Havilah Babcock, Burton Spiller, A. J. McClane, Corey Ford, Ted Trueblood, Roderick Haig-Brown, H. G. Tapply, and Nash Buckingham, along with such great modern writers as Keith McCafferty, Datus Proper, George Reiger, Russell Chatham, Tom Kelly, Gene Hill, Bill Tarrant, John Barsness, and many others. These are the best of the mainstream writers in the American sporting tradition, and reading this absorbing treasury will be a great treat for all lovers of the great outdoors.
