The Man-eaters of Tsavo and other East African Adventures is a book written by John Henry Patterson in 1907 about a pair of lions that he killed in Kenya, known as the Tsavo man-eaters. The book describes attacks by man-eating lions on the builders of the Uganda Railway in Tsavo, Kenya in 1898 and how the lions were eventually killed by Patterson. It was remarkable as nearly 140 people were killed by the man-eaters in less than a year before Patterson managed to kill them.

Yes, the book is readable, however the author has painted himself as the greatest savior of the indentured laborers who were treated badly by Patterson, and fined them heavily for petty and insignificant matters. There was no compassion (see details of his exploits in Charles Miller's 'The Lunatic Express'). Patterson's second book 'In the Grip of Nyika' was something else. He took an aristocrat couple out for hunting. The husband was missing when the party returned to Nairobi. The investigation led to a grave in the bush where they found the dead man with a bullet on the back of his head. When the news broke, Patterson slipped away with the dead man's wife (see Hunter by J.A.Hunter)

My husband loved the book and was amazed at how different this was from the movie. Good read.

I ran out and bought 'The Man-Eaters of Tsavo' after watching 'The Ghost and the Darkness' for the 30th or 40th time. I dragged the book back to my lair and ate it alive. Call it indigestion if you like, but I thought the movie was better.
