Born January 22, 1902, in Arizona Territory, John Woolf O'Connor ultimately became America's most popular outdoor writer. From his first magazine article in 1934, which he sold to "Sports Afield" for a whopping $12.50, and continuing until just a few weeks before his death in 1978, Jack O'Connor would write nine books on hunting and sporting firearms and more than 1,200 articles for "Outdoor Life," "Field & Stream," "Redbook," "True" and "Esquire." His longest and most treasured magazine association, however, was with "Outdoor Life." "The Lost Classics of Jack O'Connor" features 40 of his best "Outdoor Life" articles, none of which have ever appeared in any other book. They range from O'Connor's hunts for Coues deer in his beloved desert Southwest to his pursuit of Dall sheep and grizzlies in the Yukon and lions and leopards in Africa.
