Each chapter highlights a different legendary trapper/hunter/explorer. This is a really good one. Those guys had balls!

I'm reading Undaunted Courage at the moment. It's the story of Lewis and Clark. Very interesting and really makes you think about what an adventure it was.

Prior to that was Alone in the Wilderness. True adventure of Richard Proenneke building a cabin and living over a year in Alaska.

Best so far though is No Better Friend. If you like dogs or WW2 stories you will like this...if you like both it's even better. True story as well.

Mule Power I'm putting that one next on my list. Guessing much of it could be in the Lewis and Clark era.

That Wild Country. By Wired to Hunt Guy. Mark Kenyon

13-Apr-20
For you guys that like Mountain Man books, get a copy of a book called "Journey of a Trapper"..... I just gave it to a guy to read. Its 1805 this kid is 16 and educated for the day. He jumps ship, and heads to Wisconsin. He joins the Hudson Bay Trading Company and heads west. He is so well educated, he writes a diary, for that day, most could not read or write.

e explains how it took 40 balls to kill a grizzly bear, and to stay away from them. He talks about the Indians, and most were non combative. However they get into a spat with the Black Feet, which ends, as winter comes on, and they take refuge in a indian camp on the MO river. Come spring, the black feet were back, waiting to continue the fight.......

1882, he puts it to a manuscript. 1921, it gets published. Gone for whatever reason, 1993 its located in the Yale library, and published.... its the real deal

Born to Run by Christopher McDougall. Great read about the Tarahumara Indians and their ability to run extreme distance. Has a fascinating tie with primitive hunting later in the book. BTW I am not a runner and I loved it.

The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. Addresses the how, when, and why of how we in America get our food. Enlightening and certainly makes me happy to have a freezer full of meat.

Lasso the Wind by Timothy Egan. Analyzes many environmental issues out west. A bit dated now but great read. Any book by this author is good reading including The Worst Hard Time- about the dust bowl. The Big Burn- history of the massive wildfire in Oregon/Idaho etc with great history of Theodore Roosevelt as well as Gifford Pinchot and the start of the US forest service.

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. Amazing story of the fight for his life by the author who was a Neurosurgeon who developed lung cancer at an early age.

From: KSflatlander

No RK- I plan to be the first bowhunter to hunt polar bear in Antartica. Since they have never been hunted there its got to me loaded with some monsters. They are importable into the US. Have already cleared this with US Fish & Wildlife. They are also cleared of any CITES regulations.

My greatest concern whether they will be acceptable in the P&Y record book. They always are pickey about where animals are hunted.

In the Heart of the Sea - Nathaniel Philbrick ...... the TRUE story of the tragedy of the whaleship "Essex".

Set in 1838 - 1842, depicts the hardship of the whale ship, Essex and what the crew had to endure after the attack of a giant whale.. A couple of the surviving crew members kept a diary so the accounts are quite real and ..... resorting to cannibalism.

It was a gift to me for a flight back from Florida a couple months ago. Once I got reading it, I couldn't put it down.

Yep, finished CJ Box, Wolf Pack and Olive Cussler;s Celtic Empire. Rereading, People of the Mist. And if anyone is into science, history and archaeology, read, Charles Mann's book titled, 1491, new revelations of the Americas before Columbus.

Of Course there are many Louis L'amour books, I have read at least 50 plus. Boys In The Boat,by Daniel BRown, is a great read about a 8 man American rowing crew training for the 1936 Olympics in Germany, Very inspiring. ANd if you like to run, read, Born To Run by Christopher McDougall. my best, Paul

I love to read also. I've read all the C. J.Box/Joe Pickett books. Another series that I enjoyed is about Maine game warden, Mike Bowditch, by Paul Doiron. Then, the Sacketts and others by Louis L'Amour. You might also enjoy the Longmire series by Craig Johnson and the Cork O'Connor series by William Kent Krueger that takes place in the north woods and lakes of Minnesota. Presently, I have started War and Peace that I first read 40-50 years ago. Pray for me.

Lewis. " Where the Crawdads Sing.' Last year I was in a local coffee shop reading and looked over to the next table where this gal was also reading. In a quick glance, I caught the title but especially the word, crawdad. I ask her what the book was all about and she gave me an overview; a story of a young girl from North Carolina. While I have not read it, my wife being from North Carolina loves the book as many of her friends do also. Interesting how books get circulated and acknowledged. my best, Paul

My daughters have agreed to go hunting with me but not for something they have to pull a trigger on and kill. They have agreed to go hunting for gold with me in the north Georgia mountains. Yesterday my new book arrived "Fists Full of Gold, How You Can Find Gold In The Mountains And Deserts" by Chris Ralph. A complete guide to the art of prospecting. I started reading it last night and made all the way to page 3 before I fell asleep reading.

Ground Hunter, I believe I have the book you are talking about. Journal of a Trapper written by Osborne Russell. He was in the Rocky Mountains trapping with Jim Bridger and his outfit. I believe he was trapping in the mountains for 9 years. I read the book a few years ago and will read it again next. I am reading the book written about Paul Schafer entitled Silvertip. It was written by Robert Windauer. Also my second time to read that one. A very good read.

ESP, I've read all of those and they're all great. Ambrose and Eckert are great authors. Growing up in Western PA I really liked That Dark and Bloody River. So much of that history is still present in the names of places up there. Empire of the Summer Moon was awesome too.

I was gonna recommend Labyrinth of Ice as well but got beaten to the punch there too! I've listened to a couple of Levy books and they've all been great. The other one I really like that he did was on Cortez. The book is called Conquistador.

I've become a fan of Jack Carr and his series of books. His newest one just came out (Savage Son). His series is about an ex-Navy SEAL named James Reece (Jack is also an ex-SEAL turned author) who gets into some interesting situations (Chris Pratt bought the book rights and is apparently turning it into a series). The outdoors, hunting, and specifically bowhunting in his latest all feature very prominently in the story lines. They're a fun fictional read.

There's 2 other great authors who's series I've read a few times.

First is Patrick O'Brian's naval series during the Napoleonic wars about British sea captain Jack Aubrey and his friend/associate Dr. Stephen Maturin. A movie was made of this based on 3 of the books....."Master and Commander, Far Side Of The World".

The other is the Archer's Tale series by Bernard Cornwell, one of which is "Agincourt", a GREAT read........

"..........He turned and lowered his bow so that it lay horizontally in front of him and he laid the arrow across the stave and trapped the shaft with his left thumb as he engaged the cord. He swung the long bow upright as his right hand took the arrow's fledged end and drew it back with the cord.

"We're not to shoot," one of the archers said.

"Don't waste an arrow!" another put in.

The cord was at Hook's right ear. His eyes searched the smoke- shrouded ground outside the town and he saw a crossbowman step from behind a pavise decorated with the symbol of crossed axes.

"You can't shoot as far as they can", the first archer warned him.

But Hook had learned the bow from childhood. He had strengthen himself until he could pull the cord of the largest war bows, and he had taught himself that a man did not aim with the eye, but with the mind. You saw, and then you willed the arrow, and the hands instinctively twitched to point the bow, and the crossbowman was bringing up his heavy weapon as the two bolts seared the evening air close to Hook's head.

But he was oblivious. It was like the moment in the greenwood when the deer showed for an instant between the leaves, and the arrow would fly without the archer knowing he had even loosed the string. "The skill is all between your ears, boy," a villager had told him years before, "all between your ears". You don't aim a bow, you think where the arrow will go, and it goes." Hook released.

From now on I will constantly turn to them for help.

Currently reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. An excellent book, I recommend reading this to all fans of this genre. I learned about the book from this source when I was looking for examples of papers for my work and accidentally stumbled upon several on this book and it interested me very much.
