Fair condition; no dust jacket.

Written by his personal friend, this biography engagingly tells of the amazing hunter and woodsman, Wilburn Waters, who still evokes awe among hunters in Western North Carolina and Southwest Virginia. Chronicling his life from childhood and beyond, the book describes his settling on White Top Mountain, where he hunted bears, deer, and wolves. Of the latter he sometimes pursued entire packs, once returning from his winter’s hunt with 42 wolves killed.
