KIRKUS REVIEW

Carl Akeley, even as a small boy in Orleans County, New York, had a prodigious talent and interest in taxidermy. It was his love of animals and his desire faithfully to preserve them that made him a pioneer in the field of taxidermy, led him into highly dramatic African hunting experiences and established him as one of the most important contributors to the New York Museum of Natural History. An unusually full picture of Akeley's techniques and experiences is given in this biography of a man who was at once one of America's greatest animal lovers and greatest hunters.
