North American Elk: Ecology and Management
In the works since and finally published by the Boone and Crockett Club, this collection of stories from Jack Ward Thomas ranges from his childhood years in Texas to his later years as the 13th Chief of the U. This book and his collected stories span the decades, a conservation leader's perspectives on the development of wildlife management and habitat conservation in America during the second half of the 20th century. Included in this priceless book are entries from the journals of Jack Ward Thomas, journals he kept for many years during his years horse-packing the high country of the Pacific Northwest with his best friend and "traveling companion" Bill Brown. An unlikely pair, the two of them reveled in and retreated to the wilderness, what they called "the high lonesome," for autumn elk hunting, summertime fishing and camping trips, their favorite deer camps, and what they called "VIP Trips," in which they took government officials and the occasional politician into the wilds of the Pacific Northwest high country "to show them what we were talking about" in discussions of wilderness legislation and land management. From simple fishing stories to reminiscing about dear friends and fierce political battles, Thomas offers both an insider's view and personal recollections of years of state and federal land management -- and his own tales of the outdoors shared with his "mountain man" friend Bill Brown. This book, the third in a trilogy of Jack Ward Thomas stories and essays published by the Boone and Crockett Club, includes a collection of stories focused on hunting, wildlife, and fair chase by a quintessential hunter-conservationist.
