The Bear Hunter's Century: Profiles from the Golden Age of Bear Hunting
The years 1820 to 1920 saw the flowering of 100 years of American bear hunting, a dangerous and sometimes controversial outdoor pursuit that drew the participation of some of the most colorful characters of our frontier history. Now back in print in a softcover edition, The Bear Hunter's Century by noted historian Paul Schullery, profiles the life, times, and adventures of ten of America's greatest bear hunters, including a nearly mythical frontiersman, Davey Crockett; an American President, Theodore Roosevelt; a 20th century mountain man, Ben Lilly; and a black southerner, Holt Collier. In addition to offering a unique slice of frontier history, The Bear Hunter's Century views these great hunters within the context of modern sportsmanship and conservation.
