About this title
In this first-hand account from explorer Frederick Selous, readers follow the true story of an adventurer in a distant land. In Sport and Travel, Selous visits Asia Minor, beginning his trek in Constantinople. On what is primarily a hunting expedition, he spends most of his time in pursuit of wild goats and deer in the far-flung mountains of Turkey. In the second half of the book, first published in 1900, Selous travels to the United States to find Bighorn sheep in the Rocky Mountains. Hunters, conservationists, and adventure readers will enjoy the real-life exploits of one of the world's most accomplished hunters. British hunter and explorer FREDERICK COURTENEY SELOUS (1851-1917) was a renowned traveler and conservationist, spending much of his time charting the continent of Africa. He sent many animal trophies back to England to be displayed in museums and helped American president Teddy Roosevelt on a similar mission to supply the Smithsonian. Selous wrote a number of books about his adventures, including A Hunter's Wanderings in Africa (1881) and Sunshine & Storm in Rhodesia (1896). A hunting reserve in Tanzania now bears his name.
