WILD SPORTS OF BURMA & ASSAM Pollok 1900 Big Game Hunting
WILD SPORTS OF BURMA AND ASSAM. HURST AND BLACKETT LTD: LONDON 1900. Pollock notes that this work is an improvement over his earlier book Sport in British Burma since much had changed in the country over a period of twenty years. Both Pollok and Thorn analyze the areas of big game hunting with a species-by-species description of their hunts culled from their notebooks and journals, as well as additional vignettes supplied by other sportsmen. In Lower Burma, Pollok relates hunts after tiger and panther, with chapters on hunting buffalo, rhinoceros, gaur, tsine, and various deer species. Thom, on the other hand, relates his shooting experiences in Upper Burma in the region between Mandalay and Rangoon after elephant, gaur, and tsine. He also provides a chapter on pig sticking in Assam. The numerous photographs provide a rich visual texture. Czech, Bibliography of Asian Big Game Hunting Books.
