The only definitive work on this famous elephant hunter whose work

Elephant Hunting in East Equatorial Africa is one of the classics of

African sporting literature.

"Neumann did not become recognised for any outstanding achievements.

Unlike his contemporary Frederick Selous, the famed hunter-naturalist,

he was not involved in the politics and groundwork of empire building to

any great extent; nor did he resemble the inimitable Richard Burton, the

scholarly linguist and explorer. He could not even claim to be one of the

tiny band of high scoring professional elephant hunters of his day. But

nevertheless he became a legend in his time, and to this day is recognised

as one of the greats of African hunting lore."
