Mr. Van Dyke is well known among the lovers of hunting and fishing, through his frequent contributions on these subjects to the best sporting papers; and his descriptions will be received as authentic. The present volume discusses many features of sport in California not generally understood, and usually misrepresented. As a descriptive writer, the author shows much ability, and the exciting incidents of the story, as well as the hunting exploits narrated, are vividly portrayed. Those who seek lower California for the restoration of health, or the pleasure of the field and stream will find here many valuable suggestions." --- The Monthly Notes of the Library Association of the United Kingdom, 1881
