Dealer Notes
This is a classic account of a shooting trip from Moscow across the Urals to the Altai Shan. The author relates his hunting experiences, largely for sheep and ibex, using Demidoff’s After Wild Sheep in the Altai and Mongolia as guide, but he also provides much information concerning the country through which he and his companion travelled.
