Not sure how long it's been up there, but L.L. Bean's original guide to the above mentioned activities is on Google Books (it's a reprint from the 90s, really). In 2009 I picked up a hardcover version from the 50s and it's a pleasure to thumb through. The online scans aren't fantastic, but the text is clear. Bean's writing is practical and unfussy. As he stated himself,
"The object of this book is not to bore my readers with personal yarns and experiences but to give definite information in the fewest words possible on how to hunt, fish, and camp."
Personal tales from ol' Leon would realistically be as useful to me as pragmatic advice on bagging ruffed grouse, and doubly entertaining.
