This book is an outdated junk worth discarded. Hunting is pre-historic which has no place in the modern world. PETA and other animal lovers must bring a ban on this rag.
This book is an abridged version of Arabian Nights. I recommend the four volume complete version available in Manybooks. The volumes are very descriptive and full.
Sorry I gave a wrong rating earlier.
First read it when I was 15 and it froze me in terror. Then came Christopher Lee's excellent scary film. Then on I have read the book many times and love getting disturbed every time. Set at Victorian period with the old England language, the book still fascinates me.
