Editor reviews

Avid hunter Jay Cassell has edited several guidebooks and references of hunting advice, but his anthology of The Best Hunting Stories Ever Told explores not the head, but the heart of those drawn to the great outdoors. From the thrilling action of Christopher Batin's "Night of the Brown Bear" and "Wolf Hunters" to the tear-jerking poignancy of Cord Ford's "Just a Dog", Jason Culp captures the voices of these impassioned huntsmen.

The works of over 100 authors - turkey hunters in America, tiger trackers in Asia, legends and unknowns alike - culminates in a meditation on not only hunting but on life itself, sure to enrapture any listener during the off season.

A broad collection of hunting tales

Cassell's selections might not match my own -- no George Bird Evans, for example -- but he includes a fair and broad sample of writings by excellent writers. Well performed with enough voice inflection, accent, etc. to conjure the spirit of each piece, this collection would be a great way to introduce anyone to hunting literature.

Great listen, poorly organized

Content and performance excellent. No chapter headings or descriptions so it's hard to have context.

Great stories excite you for your next adventure

More than hunting the way it used to be, these stories tap passions and emotions that are sure to drive your planning for your next adventure, near or far, Perhaps even more important, get your children involved in listening to many of these stories and you may light a spark that kindles the urge, the calling, to become a hunter without having to coax them. Some of these stories are classics and I recall reading them in my teens leading me into a life afield.
