"Muirhead earned a living poaching elephant particularly in the Belgian Congo

and in Portuguese East Africa. His encounters with big game are numerous, and

his writing style is quite lively. Besides big tuskers he also relates his adventures

with lion and buffalo. As he notes, An elephant-poacher leads a hard life and earns

all the ivory he gets.” (Czech, An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game

Hunting Books 1785-1999, p.205).
