ISBN: 978-1-940860-06-0

Join early Boone and Crockett Club members William T. Hornaday and John M. Phillips as they traveled through the mountains of British Columbia by horseback on an expedition in 1905 to collect museum specimens and to hunt various big-game animals. Readers will be delighted with the 70 high-quality photographs taken by Phillips more than a hundred years ago. The images complement Hornaday's prose, which is highly entertaining. The hunters' adventures take them after B.C.'s Rocky Mountain goats, grizzly bears, and bighorn sheep, with hunting dog extraordinaire Kaiser as their capable sidekick. Hornaday also provides detailed natural history on the various species, big and small, they encounter along the way. Readers will also enjoy numerous campfire tales from the many colorful characters they meet on their trip.

From Hornaday's preface…

My friends are called upon to bear witness that of the various hunting trips I have enjoyed in the late lamented Wild West, I have written of one only. That was twenty years ago…Even up to the end of our hunt in British Columbia, I had no thought of bookmaking; but now that the hunt is over, and we are out of those wonderful mountains, a printed record seems worthwhile. The land looms up so grandly, its wild creatures seem so interesting, and Mr. Phillips's pictures so fine, it would seem churlish to refuse the labor that will place them before those who are to enjoy them.
