With his artwork hanging in the White House, John Seerey-Lester has become one of the most renowned wildlife and plein air artists in the world. His passion for painting the great outdoors from life has enabled him to gain a unique understanding and vision drawn from years of field study in the wilds of Africa, Asia, the Arctic and Antarctic as well as Canada and Alaska.
Now, in Legends of the Hunt, he shares his passion for wildlife in a stunning gallery of 105 paintings depicting the greatest sportsmen and explorers between the years 1849 and 1933. His riveting stories and images bring to life their legendary adventures, from life-and-death encounters with dangerous game to bizarre happenings that defy explanation. In more than 80 stories, he will take you along with Colonel Sheldon as he trails a grizzly in Alaska, with Teddy Roosevelt when he first sees Africa and with Jim Corbett when he comes face to face with a tiger in India. You will relive Hemingway's quest to bag a kudu on his first safari and be there when Frederick Selous is almost killed by a rogue elephant
