"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."
