Outdoor Pastimes of an American Hunter c. 1924
President Theodore Roosevelt observed of the book, “It isn’t customary for Presidents to publish a book during office, but I am going to publish this one.” He wrote stories of hunting big game in the West and notes about animals pursued and observed. This book contains accounts of his hunting trips in the West, his impressions of and experiences in Yellowstone Park, and a chapter on books about big game hunting. Roosevelt built a lasting legacy in the conservation movement; he continually championed the compatibility of hunting wildlife and the protection of wildlife and wilderness. Published in New York in 1924 by Charles Scribner's sons.
