Camp-Fires on Desert and Lava


B&C Classics

By William T. Hornaday

Follow Boone and Crockett Club member William T. Hornaday on his month-long expedition in November of 1907 to the uncharted lavascape of southern Arizona and northern Mexico to an area known as the Pinacate region. Hornaday is joined by John M. Phillips who had accompanied him two years earlier in the Great North, chronicled in Camp-Fires in the Canadian Rockies. You’ll once again revel in their adventures with the author’s entertaining prose as they encounter interesting characters, extraordinary craters, amazing cacti, and collect desert sheep for the Carnegie Museum.

An excerpt from Hornaday’s Preface...

Camp-Fires on Desert and Lava is a part of the B&C Classics series launched in 2012 by the Boone and Crockett Club. Each book in the series was authored by a member of B&C in the late 1800s or early 1900s and was hand-selected by a committee of vintage hunting literature experts. Readers will be taken back to a time when hunting trips didn’t happen over a weekend, but were adventures spanning weeks, months, even years.
