Nimrod's Wife


Book Description

Born into a cosmopolitan family, Grace Gallatin Seton nonetheless took easily to the rough life of an outdoorswoman when she married naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton. Nimrod's Wife, first published in 1907, is the second account of the hunting exploits of the couple (A Woman Tenderfoot is the first). The narrative, as one contemporary reviewer in Outlook put it, "preserved the atmosphere of close companionship with woods and waters that, even to the uninitiated, what is after all the chief charm of sport with gun and rod is made quite clear." This charm is as vibrant and relevant today as it was a hundred years ago.
