A particularly fine copy of one of the rarest Ohio/Michigan books. "The Ohio Hunter is endlessly fascinating, for while some of the episodes are close to fancy, most of them are probably based on fact, if not wholly accurate. Many of Edwards' adventures occurred in Michigan" - Graff.
One of the best accounts of the period, and intensely interesting, particularly when the author discusses his experiences in hunting bear.
