The Boone and Crockett Club has launched a series of classic hunting and adventure books now digitally re-mastered as eBooks. Works from Theodore Roosevelt, William T. Hornaday, Charles Sheldon, Frederick C. Selous and others are being converted to high-quality versions for eReader and iPad users.
Two titles are available now in the new B&C Classics series. Five more titles are in the works with a new one to be released every 4-6 weeks.
Each book in the series was authored by a Club member in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Titles for the B&C Classics series were carefully selected by a committee of vintage hunting literature experts.
“Unlike many of the older hunting and adventure books available elsewhere for eReaders, the B&C Classics series has been meticulously converted to high-quality, true-digital publications. Many are complete with vintage photos and drawings not found in other editions,” said Julie Houk, director of publications for the Club. “The digital quality, design and function of these eBooks will transport readers seamlessly back to a time when hunting trips didn’t happen over a weekend, but were adventures spanning weeks or months.”
