It is hoped that this book may become a standard work on Norwegian Sport. It is
the result of many years' personal experience of all kinds of sport-Stalking, Fishing,
Shooting, and Elk-hunting. The author is well known as a naturalist, and his
interesting remarks on the habits of birds and animals are those of a close and careful
observer.

Audubon, by birth an American, was the son of a Frenchman. His indefatigable pursuit of knowledge, his enthusiastic devotion to the science of ornithology, his keenness of insight, have rendered his name for ever famous as that of one of the greatest naturalists the world has seen. With Buffon, Cuvier, and Owen, he occupies a front rank from which no later investigator can dethrone him ; and at the same time he holds a position of no small importance as one of

the literary celebrities of the New World.
