Czech (Dr Kenneth) An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books 1785 to 1999, page 263: Hunting in the hinterland of Sierra leone near the Bafin River and in French Guinea on the Pinselli River, the authors bagged elephant and hippo. While in The Gambia, they collected kob, waterbuck, oribi and duiker, Stanley also relates episodes hunting buffalo in the dense forests of Southern Sierra Leone, and killing a lion that had been feeding on a pangolin. A worthy title in the African sporting library as there are few books dealing with big game in western Africa.
