How it works

Signed by the author.

From the time Francis Blackbeard first settled in Botswana in 1820 to his modern-day descendents, father Dennis and sons Gavin and Ronnie, this family with their passion for hunting have been leaders of the safari industry in that country. Set in the dry and thirsty Kalahari as well as in the beguiling environment of the Okavango Delta, this book about the professional hunting lives of the Blackbeard family is a fascinating read.
