Review - Hunting the Grisly and Other Sketches

Probably ground-breaking when written, but a bit dull now. It was a bit jarring to read some of the sketches. For example, after a lengthy bit on how the buffalo was wiped out by hunters, Roosevelt tells how exciting it was to discover one of the final wild herds left in the West and how he was having an experience which very few people would ever have again. And then he shot one of the buffalo.
