Czech (Dr. Kenneth P.) An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books 1785-1999 (Second enlarged edition, Trophy Room Press, 2011), page 130, ‘The author writes of seven tours of southwestern Abyssinia with excellent descriptions of the countryside. He crossed the Boma Plateau and hunted lion with a .250 Savage near Maji. On other tours he bagged lion near Mogilla Mountain and the Makonnen Cherosh River. He concludes with a buffalo hunt near the Kuron River. Though he had recently purchased a .404, he preferred using a .256 Mannlicher on the big cats.’
