I downloaded a book from the Library of Congress (Two Years in the Jungle published in New York in 1901), but in reading it I could see how much culture has changed in a century, reflected both in his commentary about hunting, and in his attitude of racial superiority. This in time made me uncomfortable, as I read the book, and diminished my enjoyment, and so I curtailed my reading of it. To be honest, I'm proud of what's been accomplished in the last century in making our country able to accept the many groups that make up our populace.
