Cassell's selections might not match my own -- no George Bird Evans, for example -- but he includes a fair and broad sample of writings by excellent writers. Well performed with enough voice inflection, accent, etc. to conjure the spirit of each piece, this collection would be a great way to introduce anyone to hunting literature.
This collection of short stories was nothing short of exceptional. If you are a hunter, or outdoorsman of any kind for that matter, please make this your next audible download. The narrators were excellent, and you will be riveted to every word. This stories contained within will stay with you a lifetime, and you will recall them often during your adventures and forays into the woods. Enjoy, and happy listening.
