Turgenev, Ivan: A Sportsman’s Sketches, LIT v1, 2 October 2009.

Ivan Turgenev (1818–1883)
A Sportsman’s Sketches
Translated from the Russian by Constance Garnett (1861–1946)

From Wikipedia:
“Turgenev first made his name with A Sportsman's Sketches (Записки охотника), also known as Sketches from a Hunter's Album or Notes of a Hunter, a collection of short stories, based on his observations of peasant life and nature, while hunting in the forests around his mother's estate of Spasskoye. Most of the stories were published in a single volume in 1852, with others being added in later editions. The book is credited with having influenced public opinion in favour of the abolition of serfdom in 1861. Turgenev himself considered the book to be his most important contribution to Russian literature; and Tolstoy, among others, agreed wholeheartedly, adding that Turgenev's evocations of nature in these stories were unsurpassed.”

The source was Project Gutenberg.
