AFRICAN SAFARI

An immature adventure, an stagey as amateur theatrics, takes 15 year old Chet Wagner to Tanganyika and his Uncle Harry for a summer of trapping see animals and crooks. Uncle Harry's reputation as a good and clever hunter is wide, but on the boat Chet runs into Mr. Bishoff, who has been known to hi- animals for Red satellite countries and for a time their work is blocked by him. Other elements in the story include Chet's friendship with Moglic, a native boy who distrusts him at first, and the dramatic killing of a leopard who has been terrorizing native villages. Very little bone to the meat here.
