PHILLIPS, AMERICAN SPORTING BOOKS, p.108. One of the rarest of Ohio and Michigan books. "THE OHIO HUNTER is endlessly fascinating, for while some of the episodes are close to fancy, most of them are probably based on fact, if not wholly accurate. Many of Edwards' adventures occurred in Michigan" - Graff. "One of the most fascinating accounts of the life of a frontier hunter in print" - Clements Library. The Streeter copy brought $350 in 1969. One of the best accounts of this period, and certainly one of the most readable. Bookseller Inventory # 48480
