New in New jacket. 302 pp. ill. Fierce or friendly, no one ever takes a lion for granted. When man and lion meet the situation can be fierce, fatal, frightening or humorous. The history of Kenya and British East Africa cannot be separated from the encounters of man and lion. After all, the lions came first. Then came man and the lions fought back with tooth, claw and weight. The contributors to this book are themselves a group of men who have been lionized: Tony Dyer, Tony Seth-Smith, John Sutton, David Williams, Terry Mathews, Bill Winter and more. When the last story of Africa has been written and the lion has lain down with the lamb, someone will judge the true place of the professional hunter...the men that aceept responsibility for client safety and guarantee excitement without danger, thrills without spills etc. Only someone with the lifelong background of Jan Hemsing could tie it all together.
