"In the great tradition of the Boone and Crockett Club, this, their seventh book, has essays written by Kermit Roosevelt, Grinnell, Madison Grant, Frederick Burnham, and others. Published simultaneously by Windward House and Derrydale, Hunting Trails on Three Continents remains a most elusive sporting book to obtain in either edition. The Derrydale edition was produced in an edition limited to 250 numbered copies; the Windward House edition probably was printed in considerably greater quantity, but with an unspecified limitation. It remains highly prized by book collectors and Boone and Crockett Club members alike, and in either edition can be regarded as one of the crowns of any sporting book collection." - M L Biscotti; American Sporting Book Series; page 143. "There are several African chapters in this anthology, including J G Millais' homage to Frederick Selous. Of additional sporting interest are Prentiss Gray's recounting of his trip to Angola to hunt giant sable near the Luana River, George Harrison's stalking of gemsbuck in a 1913 expedition to the Molopo River near the Kalahari Desert, and Charles Curtis' chapter on hunting giant sable in Angola." - Kenneth P Czech; An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books, 1785 to 1950; page 68. Contains Preface and 13 chapters recounting big game hunting in Africa, Asia, North America and Bulgaria. Quite uncommon and scarce in its dust jacket. ; xi, 302 pages.
