It’s not hyperbole to say Jim Shockey is a living legend. He has traveled to the wildest, most remote, and beautiful reaches of North America. He has hunted in over 40 countries and on six continents, where he has taken over 300 species. Shockey is a modern‐day explorer, anthropologist, and lover of all things wild. He’s also published over 1,000 articles, taking readers along with him on his travels and teaching us all how to yearn for what’s over the next mountain.
