"A photo-journal of his African motor Safari, with excellent photographs
by George Eastman, Pomeroy, Stewart, and photos in last section by
Martin Johnson who with his wife Osa and the Akeleys accompanied
Eastman on the trip. The safari went north from Nairobi to Lake Paradise
near Marsabit, and south to the Gurumetti River in Tanganyika.
Interesting evocation of the old-style cost-no-object hunting safari."
Kenneth P. Czech made the following comments:
"Written as a memento to his employees, the famous founder of
Eastman-Kodak company details his safari to East Africa, hunting
around Mt. Kenya, crossing the Guaso Nyiro River and bagging lion,
buffalo, and plains game. He was accompanied by Martin and Osa Johnson,
and Philip Percival was his professional hunter. On the second leg of his
journey, Eastman and his party traveled to the Gurumeti and Meru Rivers
of Tanganyika where they hunted buffalo, lion, and rhinoceros. Interestingly,
Eastman later returned to Africa to collect an elephant, a trophy most elusive
on his first venture. A chronicle of the second trip, however, was not
published until the 1980's." [Czech, An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting
Books, 1785 to 1950, p.55].
