For years ardent fans have known that Frederick Selous wrote many articles in rare periodicals such as The Field as well as being a contributor to the hunting books of other authors. They were never published in book form. Now, for the first time, Safari Press presents these articles in book form. All the stories in this book relate to the continent that fascinated Selous his entire life--Africa. Now you can read about Selous's early hunting days in Botswana, his hunts after the lions of the Kalahari, his many hunting trips in Zambezia, his outlook on big-game rifles, his elephant hunting adventures, his views on hippo, his presentation to the Royal Geographic Society concerning his hunts in Southern Africa, and much more. All of the material is annotated by the editor James Casada. In addition, there is a comprehensive bibliography as well as a photo section filled with many previously unpublished photos.
