by Alfred E. Pease, The Book Of The Lion Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Book Of The Lion book, On Safari, B.E.A., 16th October 1909. To Sir Alfred E. Pease. Dear Sir Alfred,—I am very much pleased that you are to write a book about lion-hunting. Very, very few people have an experience which better justifies such a book. It is the king of all sports when carried on as you have carried it on, especially when you gallop the lion, and then kill him on foot as he charges or prepares to charge as a lion thus rounded up will generally do. I am peculiarly pleased to have you write the book, for it was under your guidance that I first tried lion-hunting. Sincerely yours, Theodore Roosevelt. This hunting classic contains the following chapters: Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt I. Lions and Lion Land II. About Courage III. Of the Courage of Lions IV. Of Dangerous Game V. Of Sport VI. The Lion VII. The Distribution of Lions VIII. Lion Cubs and Tame Lions IX. The Haunts of Lions X. The Lion’s Voice and the Lion’s Eye XI. Some Ways of Lions XII. In the Lion’s Jaw XIII. The Food and Drink of Lions XIV. Lion-Hunting XV. Hunting with Dogs and Hunting with Horses XVI. Night-Shooting XVII. Hints for the Beginner

The Book Of The Lion

by Michael Cadnum, The Book Of The Lion Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Book Of The Lion book, A National Book Award nominee! Returning to the same era of his "In a Dark Wood", Cadnum's majestic novel--part mystery, part history--chronicles the pageantry and brutality of the Crusades under King Richard. Edmund, a young apprentice, is awaiting punishment as a counterfeiter when a knight intervenes on his behalf--and compels Edmund to join Richard Lionheart's forces in the Holy Land. There, amidst the savagery of the twelfth-century Crusades, Edmund learns both courage and compassion, and discovers that cruelty is sometimes considered the will of Heaven. Set in medieval England and the war-torn shores of the Middle East, Cadnum's tale weaves together a rich tapestry of storms at sea, the brutality of hand-to-hand combat, and one of the classic horse and lance battles in recorded history--the Battle of Arsuf.

Download The Book Of The Lion book, This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ... The above sketch map attempts to indicate the distribution of lions throughout the world in recent times, and the only areas in which lions are likely to be found now. It is difficult to find reliable information as to the present distribution of the lion in Arabia, Persia, and towards the Afghan and Indian frontiers, and also as to some parts of Asia Minor. They certainly still exist in Mesopotamia between the lower Tigris and Euphrates, and are said to be numerous in certain districts of Southern Persia. I find in my notes on the fauna of Asia Minor, made during a journey in that country in 1891, the following: -- The lion is no longer found in Asia Minor, but it exists in Mesopotamia and Axabistan, between Poelis, west of Aleppo, and Deyr, and in the Euphrates Valley, where it frequents the impenetrable thickets growing in places along the banks and on the islands in the river; it is also found in the lower part of the Karun River, but is nowhere plentiful. It is asserted that there are two varieties, one with a mane and the other maneless; the latter variety is called the maneless Babylonian lion. In India they are surviving in a few localities, such as Kathiawar in small numbers; there may be odd ones in Rajputana. A generation ago they were comparatively common about Jodhpur, Oodeypur, Gwalior, Goona, Kota, Mount Abu, and Lalolpur. In 1880 lions were common near Ahmedabad. The last lion to be killed in the Allahabad country is said to have been killed in 1864. Formerly lions ranged as far west as Greece and Roumania, and at some remote period were distributed over Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and the British Isles. Such remains of Felis leo as have been found in Pleistocene formations of the temperate regions of the Old World...

Download The Book Of The Lion book, A 1940s antiquarian book dealer gets caught up in a Manhattan writer’s murder in this mystery from Agatha Christie’s favorite American author. It should be a fairly routine job for Henry Gamadge: Examining the papers of a dead poet and playwright with some early promise but not much in the way of commercial success. But it’s not so much the life and letters as the death of the author (murdered in Central Park) that interests Gamadge. Add in a dead witness and the odd behavior of the family, and Gamadge decides something criminal is afoot. “Gamadge richly deserves his popularity with readers. Every move he makes and every sentence he speaks prove him to be a likable, intelligent gentleman.” —New York Times
