We loved it. A unique book, hard to describe, but anyone who likes anything about animals, wild or tame, will be fascinated by it. Commissioned to bring back specimens for various agencies, Sanderson went to South Africa, and this is the story of the animals he knew. The study of animals was his passion; this assignment gave him his chance, and he has shared his experiences, serious, amusing, exciting with his readers. He takes first the vermin, then the ground creatures, the tree creatures, the water creatures in turn. Has something the quality of W. H. Hudson. Anecdotal, but not as definitely popular in key as the Ditmars books, though it would appeal to the same market.
