Books of 2010: To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Tell the Truth

A while back I ordered Jeff Cooper's "To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Tell the Truth" off Amazon because I wanted to read something by the good Colonel. This one seemed like it would be a good place to start (though I have also heard many good things about his other books), so away I went. In it, he has stories about guns, hunting (mainly in Africa), defense, even one about the ocean liners of the pre-WWII era. It is very enjoyable, interesting, and readable. And now I am more than slightly infatuated with the "Scout Rifle" concept...

So, if you have any interest good old fashioned war and hunting stories with a bunch of gun lore thrown in the mix for good measure, I recommend this book. I rate it at 9.5/10, just because it is pretty short.

No argument here on the score.

"Another Country" is another of his in the same vein, although some of the stories were already published in "Ride..."
