"A little-known work with considerable big game hunting content.

The author travelled though the Zambesi Valley hunting elephant

and leopard near the Chewori River. 'Deep in the heart of elephant

country there was a wonderful fascination in lying awake at night

listening to the movements of the great beasts in the surrounding

bush and by the sounds visualising their progress through the dim

aisles of the trees… branches broken as the animals fed, rang the

pistol shots through the night...' He canoed along several stretches

of the Zambesi with stops to bag buffalo and lion. There is also an

excellent chapter on his views on rifle calibers, bullet choice and

sights. [Czech, An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game

Hunting Books, 1785 to 1950, p.138]."
