The unfortunate man, having finished his packing, had sat down on the spruce log with his face to the fire, and his back to the dense woods, to wait for his companion. While thus waiting, his monstrous assailant, which must have been lurking nearby in the woods, waiting for a chance to catch one of the adventurers unprepared, came silently up from behind, walking with long, noiseless steps, and seemingly still on two legs.

User Review  - Sonny Finch - Goodreads

This book is another one of Teddy's written like an story around the campfire. While it is fun and entertaining it lacks definitive structure. A short read however great for any nature fan Roosevelt fan or someone looking for a light-hearted collection of anecdotes. Read full review

User Review  - Susan - Goodreads

I stumbled across this and glanced at it and got caught... Short stories in a short book, so easy to read while under the weather. He tells the tales of his brother hunting the buffalo, with lots of close calls, and other adventures. But my favorite section was "Hunting with Hounds". Read full review

About the author (2006)

Periodically throughout his extraordinary career, Theodore Roosevelt turned to the writing of history. Energetic about everything he did, he imbued his writing with verve and a strong sense of drama that continues to attract readers today. Born in New York City and educated at Harvard University, he immersed himself in public affairs long before he became President of the United States. A man of many talents, he was, among other things, police commissioner, mayoral candidate, rancher, hunter, explorer, soldier, and governor. His strong sense of history probably influenced his actions more times than not, and certainly he brought to the White House in 1901 an awareness of how much the past conditions the present and informs the future. Roosevelt made history, influenced history, and wrote history.
