This is a Swedish edition of Roosevelt’s The Wilderness Hunter published in Stockholm in 1906. The American edition had been first published in 1893.

It is an indication of the international reputation which TR had as an outdoorsman and writer as well as a statesman. This book, along with his other wilderness books, indicates the profound understanding which Roosevelt had of natural history. This work, for instance, contains what was, to that time, the most detailed description of the life of the grizzly bear. Perhaps even more significant, Roosevelt wrote about his hunting and outdoors adventures in an exciting way that immediately captured the interest of the reader.
