Fine in Near Fine jacket. From the inside cover: "St. Martin's is proud to present a new and continuing series of the greatest classics in the literature of hunting and adventure, chosen from the personal library of writer and big game hunter Peter Hathaway Capstick. These showcase volumes will once again make available the true masterpieces of Africana to collectors, armchair hunters, sportsmen, and readers at large. William Buckley went to Africa for diamonds and gold. He later soldiered and hunted ivory with the best. Buckley knew the hazards of a sunbaked wilderness few nonAfricans ever saw. Like Daniel Boone or Davey Crockett, he was a true frontiersman whose mettle was tested by breathtaking danger. Fate played a role: By chance he missed perdition with the infamous "Shanghai Patrol, " an expedition of the Mashonaland Border Police that was massacred by the Matabele tribe. Such adventures at war and with big game add up to a vivid example of classic Africana at its best."
