For more than fifty years, the Weatherby Award has been known as the Oscar of the hunting world in recognition of the achievements of the world’s greatest hunters. From Herb Klein's first award in 1956 to Rex Baker's award in 2002, all the award winners to date have been included. The editor spent countless hours unearthing the best hunting stories from each of the Weatherby winners, so there are some hold-onto-the-edge-of-your-seat adventures described—tales of hunting on six continents for stunning trophies under the most difficult (and sometimes very amusing) conditions.

The stories, many never before published, are by names you will recognize: Jack O’Connor (1957 recipient), Warren Page (1958), Prince Abdorreza of Iran (1962), Dr. Frank Hibben (1964), C. J. McElroy (1969), James Mellon (1972), Rudolf Sand (1976), Valentin de Madariaga (1977), Arthur Carlsberg (1978 posthumous recipient as he fell off a mountain while sheep hunting in Asia right before he was to receive his award), Watson Yoshimoto (1980), Jesus Yuren (1995), and so on.
