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.
About the Author
Sean Jeffries is a life-long hunter who has a passion for sharing his experiences afield with others. He has kept detailed journals of every hunt that he has undertaken since 2000, and is the owner and operator of the Wingshooters.net website. His other books include "Deer Hunter's Devotional" and "Always Take Your Rifle", both of which are written with the Sportsman in mind. "Deer Hunter's Devotional" is the first piece in the "Hunting For the Heart of God" collection, which will later include a novel and a book of church-related essays. Sean lives in Clover, SC with his wife Micki, their two dogs, and their son Paul.

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.
