Comments: A bright copy. "This hunter (St. John) lived for many years in the South during the forties and fifties. ... Each chapter, usually limited to one kind of wildlife, begins with a rather technical but informative treatise on the description and the habits of that animal. ... The outstanding merit of this rare and fascinating book is the author's meticulous attention to detail, based upon his wide range of activity and his particular flare for recording realistically and vividly his pursuit of fauna of the American South."
