    politically incorrect hunting book

    ran across a copy of this on ebay the better part of 10 years ago and it went for more than i could pay......last week a library discard copy popped up on Amazon for $25 and i jumped on it seeing how better copies were going for several hundred dollars....im more of a reader than a collector anyway..

    Trailing the Giant Panda by Theodore and Kermit Roosevelt published in 1929:




    basically Teddy's two sons relaying their experience of going to collect a couple examples for the Chicago Field Museum in one of the "unexplored places listed on maps" and being the first white men to shoot one some 60 years after the first hide of one became known in the western world.....

    Congratulations on your find! That's great! There were also some early books and programs by Jacques Cousteau on spearfishing with suggestions that it wasn't the best etiquette to shoot seals; or some of the early shows in which the Calypso followed sperm whales in the Azores. They tracked them by shooting them with harpoons with buoys . . .

    glanced through the book and the two sons are like their dad in that they record alot of details on the country, people and other animals they see.....it was a collection trip for a museum, just how things are done....their observations of the ppl and country should be good if they are even half the writers their dad was...

    the displays in museums had to get their somehow and back then were often done by expert hunters sent on hunting trips on the museums dime.....
