Hardback with dustcover. Facsimile limited edition published by Trophy Room Books and Rowland Ward, 2005 . Originally published by Frederick Muller, London. 1959.

In Maneaters and Marauders one of the most experienced professional hunters living today describes his adventures when hunting down maneating lions and crocodiles, and marauding elephants which can, and sometimes do, cause famine by devastating the African natives' food crops.

In thirty-five years's continuous hunting the author never failed to respond when any natives sent him an S.O.S. and asked him to come and help them against any of these terrifying animals.

Those who have not lived amongst the natives of Eastern and Central Africa can have no conception of how numerous man-eating lions are in some areas; nor of the reign of terror they can create. The author describes how he shot and killed eleven lions in one district alone within the space of a few weeks. And that was only one of the "bad" districts known to him. He tells of many others, in this hair-raisingly exciting book, which is full of the jungle lore and real-life adventures that thrilled the thousands of readers of John Taylor's first book- Pondoro: Last of the Ivory Hunters.
