"This book is not solely designed as a handbook for the prospective hunter, but also as a guide to the naturalist, tourist, and resident, many of the latter having surprised the author with their complete ignorance of the local fauna. [. . .] Finally a chapter on the hazards to be encountered, covering everything from vampire bats to anacondas, and a section on suitable firearms to equip the hunter for every conceivable situation, completes the general picture today." Contents: Preface; The Savannah Deer; The Bush Deer; The Tapir; The Bush Hogs or Peccaroes; The Water Buffalo; The Jaguar; The Puma; The Ocelot; Lesser Animals; Game Birds and Others; Hazards; Choosing Suitable Firearms.
