Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
St. Martin's is proud to present a new and continuing series of the greatest classics in the literature of hunting and adventure, chosen from the personal library of writer and big game hunter Peter Hathaway Capstick. These showcase volumes will once again make available the true masterpieces of Africana to collectors, armchair hunters, sportsmen, and readers at large.

The twenty-sixth president of the United States was also a world-renowned hunter, conservationist, soldier, and scholar. In 1908 he took a long safari holiday in East Africa with his son Kermit. His account of this adventure is as remarkably fresh today as it was when these adventures on the veldt were first published. Roosevelt describes the excitement of the chase, the people he met (including such famous hunters as Cunninghame and Selous), and flora and fauna he collected in the name of science. Long out of print, this classic is one of the preeminent examples of Africana, and belongs on every collector's shelf.

Book Description: Birmingham, AL: Palladium Press, 1999, 1999. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Bound in full dark-brown leather, extensive decorative gilt stamping on cover and spine, raised spine hubs, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Facsimile reprint of 1910 edition. Large thick quarto, 529 pp., with period photographs by Kermit Roosevelt, illustrations by Philip Goodwin, map, appendices, index. The personally-told tales of big-game hunting in equatorial Africa by a wealthy American adventurer who also was President of the United States. In 1909 Roosevelt and his son Kermit, on safari with a band of fellow sportsmen and a retinue of servants, explored Africa's wildest reaches--the "greatest of the world's hunting-grounds"-- looking for exotic big game. They hunted lion--king of the jungle--rhino, elephant, water buffalo, wildebeast, eland and more, but also encountered hordes of "the lower things, that crawl, and fly, and sting, and bite." A simply fascinating, early-twentieth century view into the Africa that has disappeared forever. The book is in unopened, new condition, inside and out. Bookseller Inventory # 053104aa
