More Information
Old China was a hunter's paradise. Czech's collection of adventures by 25 distinguished European and American hunters includes extremely rare material. Learn unusual hunting techniques as you pursue wild boar, wolf, pheasant, tiger, tufted deer, goral, wild yak, blue sheep, antelope, takin, wapiti, ibex, and panda with the likes of Major General Alexander Kinloch, St. George Littledale, and Kermit Roosevelt, son of Theodore Roosevelt. Roy Chapman Andrews, one of the world's greatest explorers, trails a takin with the aid of a Chinese elder's mystical powers; Arthur de Carle Sowerby, the most prolific writer on sport-hunting in Old China, hangs by his nails on a lofty precipice in a goral hunt; Joseph Clark Grew wedges himself into a narrow passage to shoot a tiger that lies panting four feet from him in a dark cavern. Travel through nearly four million miles of spectacular terrain, from tropical jungles and windswept plains to rugged mountain ranges and matchless pasture. Observe the savage justice of a thief left to be eaten by tigers; the smell of the opium pipe; the lines of men carrying indigo and coffins. These carefully selected hunting episodes are the best of the best.
