I went back and re-read Roosevelt’s and Hemingway’s books, along with Ruark and more modern authors such as Boddington and Capstick. I re-read the books by John Hunter. I read African Hunting Gazette and Sports Afield, the “Perfect Shot” and, for good measure, some of the stories about Jim Corbett hunting in India.
