"For the last thirty years, Rudolf Sand has scaled the pinnacles of the world in his search for every species of wild goat and sheep. He has traveled from the deserts of North Africa to the mountains of British Columbia, the Tibetan Plateau to the Gobi Desert, the Afghan Pamirs to the Kamchatka Peninsula. Rudolf Sand is an old-fashioned hunter, going on shikars for six weeks at a time, on horseback or by walking, never using a vehicle. He is a hunter reminiscent of the early British explorer-hunters who trekked into the upper reaches of the world on long expeditions in search of the elusive Kashmir markhor or Sind ibex. The author has shot over 20 varieties of sheep and 22 varieties of wild goat - an unequaled record." Published in an edition of only 1,000 numbered copies, each signed by the author.
