Beskrivelse

At the end of the nineteenth century, Theodore Roosevelt, T.S. Van Dyke, and other elite men began describing their big-game hunting as ""manly sport with the rifle."" They also began writing about their experiences. But why did so many of these big-game hunters publish? The Hunter Elite reveals new connections among hunting narratives, publishing, and the American conservation movement.
