About This Item

1893 1st ed Teddy Roosevelt Wilderness Hunter Hunting Sports Illustrated BEARS

"When you're at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on."

Theodore Roosevelt

A far cry from his New York City upbringing, the Dakota Bad Lands became Theodore Roosevelt's stomping grounds when he moved to a ranch on the northern cattle plains. During this stage of his life he tracked giant grizzly bears through the mountains and wrote his account of these magnificent animals in "The Wilderness Hunter". Published in 1893, it is one of the most comprehensive stories of the grizzlies' private life ever told.

This charming first edition narrative of adventure in the wild has 24 full-page illustrations depicting bear hunts, large game, moose, eagles, and other American animals.
