A used book that is still tight with no bumped corners or marks. Interior text pages are flawless. The North American traveler to Africa does not soon forget the sights and sounds of that awesome continent: a big bull elephant crashing through the brush; herds of wildebeest and zebra shuffling across the desert; a hungry lion stalking its hapless prey. Many hunters have made the pilgrimage to Africa's unspoiled back country, but few have caught the essence of that thrilling experience as well as the writers represented in this volume. From the Chad to Botswana, from Kenya to Angola with stopovers in between, the reader is guided over the wonders of Africa by some of today's best outdoor writers. There's animal adventure-the kill-or-be-killed track of a wounded lion. There's mystery-trying to find the forbidden bongo in Sudan. There's geography and natural history and anthropology and a great deal more-all intelligently written and beautifully illustrated. There are also three special articles filled with practical travel information for those who are planning a safari, a visit, a stopover, anywhere south of the Sahara. Africa is changing every day. Some predict that encroaching civilization will by the end of the century destroy that which it took nature thousands of years to establish. The twenty-six articles in this book are a permanent record of how it was to hunt and to live in the African bush in the halcyon days of the Sixties. Contents in Four Parts: Africa's Dangerous Game, East Africa, Southern-Southwestern Africa and Central Africa. Plus a final chapter titled Survey of African Bird Hunting.
