KIRKUS REVIEW

Telescoped years in Africa of personal experience, observations, adventure, through tales of various expeditions, their objectives and their results. The many astounding tribes, their people and characteristics, customs and idiosyncrasies, their villages and life; ventures in photography, capturing of live specimens; hunting disappointments and accidents, as they go after baby elephants, black leopards, antelope, okapi, crocodile; sickness and short wave radio; the striking extremes of pygmies and giants; tales of snakes and pythons and their priestesses:- all here recounted by a popular explorer who knows the value of a good story, expertly divulged. An armchairful of diversion.
