About this title

Synopsis:

Faulkner was an avid hunter, as well as one of America's greatest writers. The Big Woods is a collection of Faulkner's best hunting stories. Included is his most famous hunting story, "The Bear", together with "The Old People," "A Bear Hunt," and "Race at Morning." Together, these four stories are considered to be some of the finest hunting stories ever written. Each is introduced with a prelude that weaves these tales together into a modern American classic. In Big Woods, the author creates a variety of unforgetable figures: Sam Feathers the Indian guide, his bear dog Old Ben and the young boy. These unique characters and the tragic intensity of these narratives are magically melded in stories that are without equal. Brett Smith has created six original etchings especially for this edition. Each book will be printed on acid free paper, bound in fine cloth with a silk ribbon placeholder, and slipcased. The first printing will be limited to only 1,500 copies.

From the Inside Flap:

"The Bear," "The Old People," "A Bear Hunt," "Race at Morning"--some of Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner's most famous stories are collected in this volume--in which he observed, celebrated, and mourned the fragile otherness that is nature, as well as the cruelty and humanity of men. "Contains some of Faulkner's best work."
