"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]."
