Being a Narrative of Nine Years Spent Amongst the Game of the Far Interior of South Africa
Containing Accounts of Explorations beyond the Zambesi, on the River Chobe, and in the Matabele and Mashuna Countries, with Full Notes upon the Natural History and Present Distribution of all the Large Mammalia
by Frederick Courteney Selous
Follow noted adventurer Frederick Selous as he spends nine years in the interior of South Africa as a professional hunter beginning in 1871 at the young age of 20.
In his preface he notes, “…my pages are naturally chiefly devoted to the ferae naturae amongst which I have been constantly living. Some of my conclusions with regard to lions, rhinoceroses, or other animals, may differ from those arrived at by other men equally competent to give an opinion; but, at all events, they are the result of a long personal experience of the beasts themselves, and have not been influenced in any way by ‘old hunters.'”
Selous delivers with an entertaining and informative manuscript that will delight hunters, adventurers, and sportsmen of today.
