Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Initial reviews of Eight Days in Africa have been extremely positive, and I am very grateful to those of you who have taken the time to write about the book.  The two radio interviews that I have done regarding the book also went quite well, and I'd like to thank Mike Tomano from WKAN and Bill Bartee and Don Yeager from WBT for having me on.

I am in the early stages of planning my African safari, I bought this book on amazon and read it in 3 nights, I purposely took my time to read it once, now I am re-reading it, highlighting the species and companies and starting to make contacts.
Excellant book, well written.

One note for Mr. Jeffries: 7mm is .284 not .277 (page 41)

I've been hunting for a little over 6 years now. I'm 36 but I didn't grow up hunting. My dad was a fisherman and I cherish my times fishing with him. During many of our fishing trips, we'd often talk about hunting and many times our thoughts would turn to Africa and the plentiful and amazing creations that God placed there. Sadly, Dad passed away before we had the opportunity to do much more than squirrel hunting. One of the ways I've honored his memory is learning to hunt for the game we often talked about on our fishing trips. Over 6 years of hunting in the South East, I've been able to accomplish many kills. Now my heart has turned to Africa, and Eight Days in Africa has been a great read to help me get ready for that trip. It goes step by step through your journey. From home to base camp, to being afield to tracking a kill, this book is wonderful! It has wonderfully illustrated stories that help you visualize your time there as well as help you know what to expect. It's a book I would have liked to read with my Dad.. I recommend this book and encourage you to give it to anyone who dreams of the amazing creation that is Africa!

this was a great read for anyone planning on such a trip as well as for anyone who enjoys hunting and the outdoors. I hope Sean gets to go back so we can hear about that safari also.

The author's enthusiasm for his first hunt in Africa is one of the good points of this book, as is his vivid descriptions of the toils and challenges of the hunt and the animals being hunted. High points include hunting the zebra and the unsuccessful pursuit of a wounded gemsbuck, which wasn't wasted as it surely wound up in the bellies of lions, jackals, or other predator. There is also a lot of good information for anyone planning their first African safari.

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.
