"The Art of the Rifle" is a training manual on the use of the rifle in the field, not at the firing range. When the first edition of "The Art of the Rifle" was released in 1997, it received glowing reviews from every quarter. In "The Art of the Rifle: Special Color Edition", Cooper's eloquent & spirited prose is matched with beautiful, artfully displayed color photographs, illustrating exactly how the rifle is to be used in all kinds of circumstances.
"Riflecraft has been completely ignored since World War II," says Jeff Cooper, America's foremost rifle instructor. To remedy this situation, he took it upon himself to set down the fine art of the rifle before it was lost forever. In his no-holds-barredstyle, Cooper instructs you in everything you need to know about shooting the rifle, while entertaining you with tales of marksmanship, combat and big-game hunting.
