Gifts ideas as well.

My picks: (reccomendations from my library)

(The Theodore Roosevelt Books):

1)African Game Trails : TR's big safari into Africa

2)Hunting Trips of a Ranchman (this is available with a collection of North American Hunting Stories)

3) The River of Doubt (not by TR but about his last adventure, which nearly killed him).

Peter Hathaway Capstick:

1)Death in the Long Gr [no swearing please]
2)Death in a Lonely Land
3)Death in the Silent Places
4)Maneaters
5)The Last Ivory Hunter

Bow Hunting and Archey:

1) Ishi in Two Worlds
2) Hunting the Hard Way (Howard Hill)
3) Hunting with the Bow and Arrow (Saxton Pope)
4) Life at Full Draw (the Chuck Adams Story)
(I can't reccomend Super Slam - poorly written collection of magazine articles - Sorry Chuck, you leave out some of the best parts of the hunts)

Robert Ruark:

1) The Old Man and the Boy
2) Horn of the Hunter

John Hunter:

1)Hunter
2)White Hunter

Old time African Safari:

1)Big Game Hunting and Collecting in East Africa - Kalman Kittenberger

2)White Hunters: The Golden Age of African Safaris - Brian Herne (this covers a century of African Hunting)

3)The Wanderings of an Elephant Hunter - WDM 'Karamojo' Bell

4)After Big Game in Central Africa - Edouard Foa

of course:

The Perfect Shot
and
The Perfect Shot North America

(Sorry Ant - I have yet to read The New Age Hunter - looking forward to it)

I have most of Capstick's books and they're great![up]

I just finished the Lost Classics of Jack O'Connor. That is a 'must read'.

Another good book is Jenny Willow[up]

What about the "classics" of Jack London?
I'm concentrating on hunting stories (non-fiction)- but if you insist on the classics:

Jack London : A Collection of Short Stories (To Build A Fire)
White Fang
Call Of The Wild

James Fennimore Cooper:
The Leatherstocking Tales
Last of the Mohicans

I'm a Jack London fan from way back. I had tons of books accumulated in my first house, but threw most of them out when I moved, but I saved a few of my favorites.
I just got "The Last Ride" which is what the Ron Howard movie, "The Missing" is based on, I love indian culture.
I just sold my "Sagitarius" on Ebay for $230, which I bought at Dave Staples shop in Pa. in 76, for $30.
