It was first published in the second volume of Clive Phillipps-Wolley's 1894 book, Big Game Shooting and contains a wealth of information on hunting the chamois, a small goatlike bovid indigenous to the mountains of Europe. From tacking and traversing its habitat to shooting and other useful details, this volume contains much in the way of information that will be of utility to modern hunters. “The Chamois” is highly recommended for modern readers with a practical interest in hunting and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature.

Ernest Hemingway’s lifelong zeal for hunting is reflected in his masterful works of fiction, from his famous account of an African safari in “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” to passages about duck hunting in Across the River and into the Trees. For Hemingway, hunting was more than just a passion; it was a means through which to explore our humanity and man’s relationship to nature. Courage, awe, respect, precision, patience—these were the virtues that Hemingway honored in the hunter, and his ability to translate these qualities into prose has produced some of the strongest accounts of hunting of all time. Hemingway on Hunting offers the full range of Hemingway’s writing about the hunting life. With selections from his best-loved novels and stories, along with journalistic pieces from such magazines as Esquire and Vogue, this spectacular collection is a must-have for anyone who has ever tasted the thrill of the hunt—in person or on the page.
