Colorful, paper DJ with an elephant, title, author and embellished with green and red. "Pondoro" means "lion" in Chinyungwe. It was the natives' name for John Taylor when he first began to hunt in Africa, on the lower Zambesi. Actually it is a shortening of the more formal title Chimpondoro, meaning "the lion-like one" or "the roaring of the lion." For more than thirty years Taylor-Pondoro-has been a professional hunter, often out of touch with civilization for as long as three and four years at a time. " I did not learn of World War ll", he says, "till some of my men went in for provisions and brought back tea and salt wrapped in old newspapers. Where I am there is no radio and I never see another white man." Bookin' it does not endorse ivory hunting.
