Editorial Reviews

Follow father and son explorers down the same treacherous African paths in a remarkable documentary that traces Theodore Roosevelt's 1909 expedition though vintage footage and photographs before moving forward in time to 1986 to follow the former president's great-grandson through the same wondrous land. Armed with his great-grandfather's rifle and with his young son by his side, the descendent of the twenty-sixth president traces the footsteps of elephants and crocodiles as he bonds with his young son and teaches him about the dangers of the hunt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hunting and Non-Hunting Perspectives June 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This documentary is a boy's story about his African Safari. It provides an excellent insight into hunting, particularly African hunting and how it relates to the preservation of game. Not only does it present some interesting historical ties and rarely seen footage to Teddy Roosevelt's famous 1909 safari, but it also accurately depicts important issues of past and present game management issues. I highly recommend this film for the hunter and non-hunter.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most excellent video on Hunting ever produced. February 8, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Although the video captured today's East Africa, it is a combination of old and new. Using Roosevelt the Greater as the focal point, this video does more to explain the mystery and charm of hunting as anything I have ever seen. I love animals better than most people but Hunting is in the absolute core and makeup of mankind. To ignore this is a tragedy. Whether you comprehend my plea or think it foolish, see this video. I have my copies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passing the torch August 19, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a trans-generational film that links us directly to the recent past with Teddy Roosevelt, to the present generations both young and old, but also to our ancient past, the hunt and the values of life and death. It reminds us of the respect we must maintain about our position in nature and our actions toward all animals. Death begets life in the never ending drama of nature, here as played out both day and night in Africa.

This is a movie about transition from youth to manhood, of taking on responsibility and understanding its consequences. Hunting is not about the power to destroy or wantonly waste, but about conservation and the true value of life. A young boy moves from novice hunter to the successful culmination of a hunt of one of the most dangerous of game animals, the Cape Buffalo with an historic rifle used in Africa by Teddy Roosevelt in 1908. He learns that hunting is more than killing. We witness the torch being past from one generation to the next.

Human beings are a part of nature. Hunting eliminates the sanitized world of prepared food in super markets and restaurants and puts us back into nature and face to face with who and what we are. If we can come back from that experience with the same understanding and respect discovered by this boy and as written about by Teddy Roosevelt, we are better for it.

It is "in our blood", it has been for tens of thousands of years. If we loose contact with our past, and detach ourselves from nature, our futures will be aimless.

This is the single best movie to introduce people to the ideals of hunting.
