Legends of the Hunt: Campfire Tales, the much-anticipated sequel to John Seerey-Lester’s 2009 Legends of the Hunt, features more than 130 paintings by the artist and some sixty exciting stories covering the remarkable true-life adventures of many of the world’s greatest hunters, explorers, and conservationists. You will read stories about such legends as Theodore Roosevelt and African professional hunter J. A. Hunter; the true story of Grizzly Adams; harrowing encounters involving William Hornaday and Ernest Thompson Seton; and a gut-wrenching story about Carl Akeley. There are many other legends in this spellbinding book, which brings to life all the tales that were told around campfires over the past 150 years.
As you gaze at Seerey-Lester’s authentic, wonderfully absorbing images, you will smell the smoke from the campfire, feel the freezing rain against your skin, and taste the dust from the African plains. Most certainly you will find yourself drifting back in time to join those honored men and women as they relate their adventures around the campfire.
