Great Russian author Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818–1883) was an avid hunter and nature lover and used his own experiences in the woods of his native Russia to pen A HUNTER’S SKETCHES (written in the period of 1852–1874). This work established his reputation as a foremost writer of his time. “Do you know, for instance, the delight of setting off before daybreak in spring? You come out on to the steps. . . . In the dark-grey sky stars are twinkling here and there; a damp breeze in faint gusts flies to meet you now and then; there is heard the secret, vague whispering of the night; the trees faintly rustle, wrapt in darkness. And now they put a rug in the cart, and lay a box with the samovar at your feet.” — from “The Forest And The Steppe”

Author Bio: Ivan Turgenev

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818–1883) was the first Russian writer to gain a wide reputation in Europe. He witnessed the February Revolution in Paris (1848), and his subsequent connection with reform groups in Russia, along with his sympathetic 1852 eulogy of Nikolai Gogol (who satirized the corrupt bureaucracy of the Russian empire), led to his arrest and one-month imprisonment in St. Petersburg. In 1879 the honorary degree of doctor of civil law was conferred upon him by the University of Oxford.
