Unclipped dustcover over original black boards with gilt lettering to spine. Originally published in 1949. With an Introduction by Negley Farson.
'Karamojo' Bell became a legend within his lifetime, for he was perhaps the greatest of all elephant hunters. The big hunters in East Africa will call your attention to Bell, not beacuse he killed so many elephants, but because he understood them so well, and loved them. 'He knows!' they will tell you. And there will be real affection in their voices.
This combination of a professional killer and the artist-adventurer is not so rare as one might think; a man must have something of the poet in him to become a great hunter, and it is a matter of record that practically all the great hunters of Africa have ended up by becoming mystics.
Karamojo Safari has been out of print for over thirty years. As in Bell's The Wanderings of an Elephant Hunter, it is a wonderful and true story of a journey into Karamojo some seventy or more years ago, when it was still an unknown part of Africa, guaranteed to keep you enthralled from first page to last.
