Leo Kroger was born in Khabarovsk in the Russian Far East. As he says in the opening in the book, "this [being born in Siberia in 1912] condemned me to savor two great wars, a multitude of revolutions, the Soviet and Japanese occupation in Manchuria, Nazism, communism, apartheid, and the atomic bomb." He lived and hunted in Sibera, Manchuria, China, England, Germany, and, since 1953, Mozambique.
This is the story of his hunting life-with emphasis on his hunting in Africa-told in wonderful anecdotes that are at times warm. personal, witty, and above all humourous. It is the story of a man with a lifelong passion for hunting and wingshooting; it is the story of the relationship between a man and his dog and between a man and his guns; and it is the story of the assorted colourful characters, and there were many, who accompanied him on the frozen marshes of Siberia as well as in the blistering forests in Mozambique.
My Last Kambaku reflects the richness and fullness of Leo Kroger's unusually long and eventful life, making this an engaging hunting memoir as well as a page turner. Foreword by his friend and hunting companion for many years, Baron Werner von Alvensleben. Introduction by Erpo Freiherr vo Droste zu Vishering.
