More Information
From the small urial sheep of the Middle East to the mighty 60-plus-inch argali to the majestic Rocky Mountain ram, it is fair to say that no other class of animal evokes such great passions in hunters as do the wild sheep of the world. The classifications for the varieties of sheep have always been controversial, but now for the first time in more than forty years the authors of this book definitively classify every type of sheep in their text. Interspersed with hunting stories by Jack Atcheson Jr. and Sr., Soudy Golabchi, Robert Logan, Hubert Thummler, Dennis Campbell, Henry van den Broecke, Margaret Frisina, and Duncan Gilchrist, the book lays out a systematic approach to classifying the wild sheep of the New and the Old Worlds. Detailed distribution maps and color photos help make this the best overview and information to date on the wild sheep that are so sought-after worldwide. For purposes of completeness, blue sheep, Barbary sheep, and tur have been included, even though they are not sheep. Both Drs. Mike Frisina and Richard Mitchell have spent countless days in the field studying and observing sheep in areas as diverse as Pakistan, Central Asia, Mongolia, Alaska, and the Western United States. The authors reclassify many sheep, which is sure to be controversial to some and, in so doing, offer a new and fresh approach to a subject matter that fascinates endlessly. As Dr. Thomas Bunch wrote upon reviewing the manuscript: "This one-of-a-kind book on wild sheep, informative to anyone interested in wild sheep, will be considered a classic."
