Excellant book, well written.
One note for Mr. Jeffries: 7mm is .284 not .277 (page 41)
I wish the author had included more details of South Africa and its people, and spent less time on the minutia of his own daily life. One can well believe this book started as a journal; and only wish it had graduated to something more. The book suffers in places from poor writing, and leads me to my main question: where the heck was the editor? I don't wish to be mean, but there is little evidence of either content- or line-editing. Any writer left to his own devices will leave mistakes all through his work. Even Hemingway and Ruark needed editors.
I'm a bit disgusted with Amazon for not removing, after I complained, the two comments and one-star ratings from anti-hunters. Leaving these reviews is most unfair to the author. Reviews should be based on the content of the book, not someone's emotional reaction to something they don't approve of. Maybe I should look for books on photo "safaris" and post bad reviews because they don't include hunting.
