KIRKUS REVIEW

Set in the framework of the story of Game Ranger Hunter's manhunt for the leader of an ivory smuggling ring are the author's fascinating reminiscenes of fifty years as a white hunter in Kenya. Among his memories of men and beasts are such exciting incidents as the encounter of a lion and an airplane, a man's fight to the finish in a bare-handed struggle with two leopards. The human element is not missing since Hunter tells about the various people he has led on safari, the natives of the Kenya area and his own career. This would seem to be a must for the audience that enjoyed Elephant Bill and Man Eaters of Kumaon, filled as it is with one adventure after another told with easy informality and almost continuous excitement. Even if you feel you are familiar with Hunter's story through his earlier Hunter (a Harper Find in 1952) you'll discover new material and the same vivid story telling here.
