Czech (Kenneth) An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books 1785 - 1999, page 269: A pre-eminent elephant hunting title, this details Stigand's big game hunting efforts primarily in British East Africa, North Eastern Rhodesia, Nyasaland and the Lado Enclave. He includes chapters on hunting rhinoceros, buffalo and lion, but related his encounters with elephants with particular verve. As he states in Chapter 1: "There is something so fascinating and absorbing about elephant hunting that those who have done much of it can seldom take any interest again in any other form of sport."
