Stephen J. Bodio's famous review column in Gray's Sporting Journal (1981-1992) included discussions on everything from hook and bullet how-tos to modern novels and science writing. Continuing in that tradition, A Sportsman's Library: 100 Essential, Engaging, Off-Beat, and Occasionally Odd Fishing and Hunting Books for the Adventurous Reader draws on the same wide-ranging curiosity and encyclopedic knowledge of sporting literature that informed Bodio's Review. From all the familiar, beloved classics books by Izaak Walton, Robert Ruark, and Norman Macleanto the hidden gems that no one but Bodio could have uncovered (ancient treatises on falconry, and modern considerations of the catfish as metaphor), each one of these short reviews is illustrated in color and presented in a browsable, easy-to-read format.
