Grounds-Eye Views of Big Game Hunting,
This review is from: Memories of an African Hunter (Peter Capstick's Library) (Hardcover)
Hardback with dustjacket, 268 pp, cloth over boards with a sewn binding.
From the flap: "One of the truly great writers on African hunting, Denis Lyell was the center of the hunting world in the early 1900s. His gripping and highly readable Memories of an African Hunter, an account of his many years in the Dark Continent includes sections on elephant, rhino, buffalo, hippo, lion, and much more."
"...brings the reader the heat, fatigue, and adventure of African hunting, the smell of campfires long extinguished, the dust, the blood, the malaria, the sleeping sickness, the alcoholism, camaraderie and suicides, man-eating incidents and all those often harrrowing conditions of life in the British Central African bush of the day."
