    Written in the late nineteenth century and first published in Harper’s Round Table magazine in 1896, this collection of articles details turn-of-the-century America’s rugged wilderness. Good Hunting is an engaging read for those whose interests lie in hunting sports, and nature. Roosevelt, being the first president to begin many of the national park conservation programs in twentieth-century America, was a lover of the outdoors, and his writings are filled with notations and observations of the lands that he explored. From hunting elks, wolves, and bucks, Roosevelt provides stunning insight into some of northwestern America’s most well-known inhabitants.Good Hunting is a fascinating historical portal through which we can view a celebrated sportsman, president, and keen observer of the outdoors. The seven chapters in this book range from classic hunting articles, memorable anecdotes from other outdoorsmen, and even a detailed piece on the specifics of ranching—a topic of much interest at the turn of the century.This is a classic read for anyone wanting to learn more about a man who was so loved by a country, and to escape to the America of yesteryear.Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for hunters and firearms enthusiasts.

    In hockey, goalies have always been a contradiction — solitary men in a team game, the last line of defence and the stalwarts expected to save the day after any and every miscue and collapse from his teammates. It’s no wonder that anyone who played the position has had his sanity questioned; yet some of the biggest innovations in the game have come from its puckstoppers. In The Goaltenders’ Union, Greg Oliver and Richard Kamchen talk to more than 60 keepers of yesterday and today, finding common threads to their stories, and in dozens of interviews about them with other coaches and players. From Gilles “Gratoony the Loony” Gratton, who refused to play because the moon was out of alignment with Jupiter, to Jonathan Quick, the athletically gifted master keeper of today’s game, the book is an entertaining and enlightening peek behind the mask.

    Golf’s Greatest Collapses

    Golf's Greatest Collapses recounts the agony-and
     
    sometimes humour-of the worst moments of a
     
    golfer's career, the moment when he can't do anything
     
    right. Golfers collapses are borne of the weight of the
     
    moment, the gaze of thousands of fans, the click of
     
    photographers' cameras, the underlying awareness
     
    that millions of people around the world are watching.
     
    Some golfers never recover from a collapse; others
     
    use it to learn, and when the situation recurs, they are
     
    wiser and better able to handle the pressure of the
     
    moment. Collapses can be good in the long run, or they
     
    can be forever devastating.
