Horns and Hoofs


“HORNS and Hoofs” will be a very useful volume to the sportsman and sporting naturalist, although we do not consider the title as particularly well selected to attract their notice. The work is, in fact, a more or less popular account of the principal mammals of the Ungulate order, which sportsmen ordinarily regard as “game.” The chapters of which it consists originally appeared as articles in The Field and Land and Water. They have now been revised and put together in a connected form, and thus make a convenient volume of some four hundred pages.
