Maine has a rich history of hunting, fishing, and other outdoor pursuits. The First People fished and hunted for their survival, as did the first Europeans to visit the area. Later, the Maine sporting camp was popularized as a place to escape from the bustle and test your manhood against the wilderness of the northern woods. Teddy Roosevelt considered his experiences in the Maine wilds instrumental in developing the man he became.
Today, these outdoor sports are as popular as ever, and there is no shortage of talented writers to bring the magic of the hunt or the thrill of landing the big one vividly to life. This anthology collects stories and essays from 20th and 21st century writers, including George Smith, Tom Hennessey, and Edmund Ware Smith. Perfect for camp or home, it will remind readers of past adventures and inspire new ones.
