Legends of the Hunt—Campfire Tales

John Seerely-Lester
Precio: EUR 83,-
2013 Columbia, 200pp, color illus.
Encuadernación: 12x11, hardcover, dj
Seerey-Lester's first book, Legends of the Hunt, featured a stunning gallery of 105 paintings depicting legendary outdoorsmen between the years 1849 and 1933. Now, in Legends of the Hunt-Campfire Tales, the celebrated artist shares 60 true stories and more than 150 paintings and drawing that document life-and-death encounters with dangerous game and strange, often bizarre events that defy description.

When it comes to reliving in both words and paint the greatest adventures of the world's most distinguished explorers and hunters, no artist does it better than John Seerey-Lester. We have all read books by Roosevelt, Corbett, Bell, Sheldon, and many other luminaries of the chase, and in this new book Seeley-Lester brings their most memorable moments to life like nowhere else! Gaze at Theodore Roosevelt as he stands fast before a charging lion; watch a trio of Swedish adventurers as they struggle to survive in the Artic wilderness; commiserate with a veteran prospector who is savagely bitten by an enraged grizzly; contemplate famed explorer Carl Akeley as he finds himself haunted by the visage of a giant gorilla.

These and so many other famous scenes come straight from our big-game hunting past, and its most famous moments are depicted with vivid colors and with extreme historical accuracy. Seerey-Lester's wonderful artwork is accompanied by lengthy and accurate text describing for the reader what they have just seen.

This book is a visual feast for the eyes. As you gaze at Seerey-Lester's authentic, wonderfully absorbing images, you will smell the smoke from the campfire, feel the freezing rain against your skin, and taste the dust from the African plains. Most certainly you will find yourself drifting back in time to join those honored men and women as they relate their adventures around the campfire.
