Musk-Ox, Bison, Sheep, and Goat The Still-Hunter

Nature volume 70, pages 266267 (21 July 1904) | Download Citation



THE members of the deer tribe, together with the pronghorned antelope, or prongbuck, having been described in an earlier volume of the same series, the work standing first in our list completes the account of the wild ruminants of North America. The names, of the authors—Mr. C. Whitney for the musk-ox, Mr. G. B. Grinnell for the bison, and Mr. O. Wister for the mountain sheep and the white goat—form a sufficient guarantee that the text of this volume will combine that mixture of sport and natural history for which the true sportsman always looks in works of this nature, and a glance at its pages shows that such is really the case. From title-page to index the method of treatment and the style of writing are admirable, so admirable, indeed, that there is scarcely a sentence to which exception can be taken.
