I grew up in NY, and the My Side of the Mountain series was awesome to me as a kid, and now even. My Grandfather had the whole collectors series of Louis L'Amour that he passed onto me. The Sacketts were legends in my eyes as a kid. My favorite of his though has gotta be Last of the Breed, I've made it a point to read that at least once a year, and have done so for the past 13 years, and I'm always engrossed in it from cover to cover!In addition, for me it was "My Side of the Mountain", and the Sackett series of Louis L'amour books, especially "To the Far Blue Mountains".
The only "hunting" books I had as a kid were the old North American Hunting Club collections. I loved the one's about hunting the west and Alaska. Nowadays, I've been enjoying O'Connors works and whatever I can find online, especially the stories out of turn of the century Africa
