Picked this up on my dad's recommendation. I was excited about some of the contributors, like Wodehouse and Thurber, and came away with a few new authors to admire. I liked the humorous stories more than the hunting stories, although I still appreciated the writing style in some of those. Here's the list of stories, which include fiction and nonfiction, some of them excerpts from longer works:

It also shows in the generally accepted practice of letting dogs roam free, drowning unwanted puppies and the acceptance of beating dogs and kids alike.

I had to take each story in context: this story was written in 1922

For the most part, this is not a hunting book, but it contains one of the greatest hunting stories ever written, Corey Ford's, "The Road To Tinkhamtown." This alone makes the book worth the price of admission!
