re: OB Book Club: Last Days of Last Island (Posted on 7/11/13 at 2:37 pm to choupiquesushi)
Just finished "Death in the Silent Places"...
REALLY REALLY recommend this book to the OB. It chronicles the greatest hunters from the late 1800s - early 1900s.
It touches on Col. Patterson, who for those of you that saw "Ghost in the Darkness", you're already up to speed on this dude.
Someone you may not have heard of is Sasha Siemel. This guy hunted jaguars in the Matto Grosso with a spear, which he preferred to a rifle due to the dense cover in the jungle. He liked to look them in the eye when he stabbed them with the spear...but then again, who doesnt?
But dont take my word for it, check it out for yourself.
