presents a vivid picture of a phase of American life which is
rapidly passing away, with clear, incisive force." N. Y.
Literary News.

" For one who intends to go a-hunting in the West this
book is invaluable. One may rely upon its information. But
it has better qualities. It is good reading for anybody, and
people who never hunt and never will are sure to derive pleas-
ure from its account of that part of the United States, rela-
tively small, which is still a wilderness." N. Y. Times.

comed as contributing to raise the literary prestige of the country all over
the world." N, V. Tribune.
