About this book

The Northeast of the United States, especially Maine, has an exceptionally rich heritage of early literature about wildlife. These writings are buried in obscure scientific books and journals, government documents, rare books, old newspapers, and discontinued sporting periodicals. The primary section of this book is a chronologically-arranged compilation of selected quotations from these hard-to-find sources, thus making accessible significant wildlife writings of early biologists, naturalists, and woodsmen from northern New England and eastern Canada.

The book functions as a unique guide to help readers find important early records relating to the biology, distribution, and conservation of four predators and three ungulates. It also includes biographical sketches portraying the twenty-one authors whose writings are most frequently quoted alongside short histories of the six sporting journals and newspapers most frequently cited in the book.
