    • I enjoyed the book, but didn't care for the details of actually shooting and killing animals. The descriptions of the animals look and behavior leads me to believe that Roosevelt spent more time watching and learning about animals then he spent shooting. He also takes great pains to explain the merits of learning how to track game rather then climbing up a tree to wait for something to walk by.This was the first of the books written by Theodore Roosevelt that I have written, and I look forward t [...]


    • I borrowed this book from an unofficial library and brought it back a degree dirtier and crinkled from where it got wet in an actual stream that soaked my backpack. I would, though unfortunately not always, read this book in a part of the woods very close to my house on top of a huge boulder right by a very shallow tributary that ran through to a much larger stream (it's been raining here a LOT). I liked this book overall, and honestly, I would like to think that Teddy would be very much okay wi [...]


    • While I am deeply appreciative of all that Teddy Roosevelt did to maintain public lands and wildlife in America, these books were a difficult read for me. Prior to reading them, my impression of Roosevelt was that he was the consumate sportsman but his hunting experiences reflected someone who was rather wanton in his approach to hunting. There were simply too many instances of excess (e.g he and one other person shooting 105 grouse in one day) for me to enjoy these books.


    • A really fascinating look at Theodore Roosevelt's time as a ranchman in the Dakota badlands and his many hunting trips and forays into the wilderness, this book serves as much as a biography of Roosevelt himself as it does as an account of his hunting trips. Written before Roosevelt was elected president, Hunting Trips & Wilderness prefigure the legendary figure which would come to define rugged individualism in America and the effect which such myths would have on American self-conception. [...]


    • A bit intimidating, but man. I have read a lot of books about hunting/the outdoors and this one takes the cake. I'm not one for heroes, but Teddy is hero material. He basically invented wildlife conservation, ran a huge Montana ranch, was involved in politics(obviously), hunted, fished, and wrote several books. All without the aid of modern transportation, medicine, or clothing. Amazing read.


    • "Hunting Trips of a Ranchman" was an entertaining read if the hunting narrative genre floats your boat. Unfortunately "The Wilderness Hunter" was mostly a re-edited HOToaR with entire chapters lifted wholesale. Including both books in a single volume was pointless and disappointing


    • Theodore Roosevelt on his trips to our then wilderness.Fascinating.The writing is a little dated and somewhat dry, but the observations and attention to detail are amazing.
