About the Author:

Howard Hill devoted his life to the promotion of archery until his death in 1975. He is considered by many to be the greatest archer/hunter of all time. His bow work is featured in several movies, including Robin Hood, Dodge City, and They Died With Their Boots On. The list of awards he won is impressive, including 196 Field Archery tournaments in a row. He took well over 2,000 animals with his bow and arrow. He was the first white man to kill an elephant with a bow and arrow, and the only man to do it without the use of a poisoned arrow.

Review:

When this book first appeared in 1954, Howard Hill, the fabled archer, was at the top of his game. This collection of stories documents Hill's versatility with the bow and his eye for rousing showmanship: mountain lions in Arizona; blue marlin (yes, with a bow) off Baja; lions, pythons, crocs-a veritable Noah's Ark, in fact- in Africa. Hill was an adept storyteller and a swashbuckling personality, bigger than life. Wild Adventureis a tribute to his skill and to his style. (Lionel Atwill Field & Stream)

If you're in to outdorr adventure, this book is cool. (Star-Gazette)

OK, it's not high tech, but if you're into outdoor adventure, this book is cool. First published in 1954. "Wild Adventure" was written by Howard Hill, the protypical "extreme" guy. (Star-Gazette)
