Boone and cRockett Club launches B&C Classics series of ebooks
The Boone and Crockett Club has launched a series of classic hunting and adventure books now digitally re-mastered as eBooks. Works from Theodore Roosevelt, William T. Hornaday, Charles Sheldon, Frederick C. Selous and others are being meticulously converted to high-quality versions for eReader and iPad users.
Each title in the B&C Classics series was authored by a Boone and Crockett Club member in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Books in the series were selected by a committee of vintage hunting literature experts.
Unlike many of the older hunting and adventure books available elsewhere for eReaders, the Boone and Crockett Classics series has been meticulously converted resulting in high-quality, true-digital publications. Many are complete with vintage photos and drawings not found in other editions. The quality will help transport readers back to a time when hunting trips didn’t happen over a weekend, but were adventures spanning weeks or months.
