“Forty-Four Years of the Life of a Hunter”

by Meshach Browning contains many highly exciting hunting experiences enjoyed by this courageous Maryland hunter. It also gives a very accurate and appealing description of the home life of the pioneers in the Appalachian region. The book contains a brief history of the Browning family, and describes in detail many thrilling hunting adventures such as stabbing an enraged bear seven times, killing a huge panther with a club, and outfighting a wounded buck in the icy Youghiogheny River. It is now being read from coast to coast and from Alaska to Texas. The twelfth edition may be obtained at $5.00 per copy, postpaid, by writing:
