About this title:
Synopsis:
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.

African Game Trails includes stories about President Theodore Roosevelt advertures throughout East Africa, Belgian Congo, Mombassa, Khartoum, etc. Travelling the world to hunt and kill dozens of animals including Lions, Rhinos, Giraffes, Leopards, Buffalo, Hippos and Elephants.  This fascinating story about Teddy Roosevelt's hunting adventures are not for the squeamish or the politcally correct as it includes heart-pounding stories.

About the Author:
Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, future President of the United States was already a published author by the time he was twenty-five. From The Naval War of 1812 through his four-volume Winning of the West, Teddy Roosevelt proved himself a master historian...but one must not make the mistake of labeling him a stodgy academic. The future president was also a great outdoorsman, with such works as? Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail and African Game Trails capturing his rough and adverterous lifestyle. Theodore Roosevelt was part Francis Parkman, part Lowell Thomas, and one hundred percent spirit of America and master of the printed page.

Peter Hathaway Capstick, former Wall Street stockbroker turned professional adventurer, has been critically acclaimed as the successor to Hemingway and Ruark in African hunting literature. After hunting in Central and South America, Capstick went to Africa in 1968, where the New Jersey-born writer continues to live. He has held professional hunting licenses in four countries, and served as a game officer. He has written seven exciting books on Africa, including Death in the Long Grass, Peter Capstick's Africa, and The Last Ivory Hunter: The Saga of Wally Johnson. He's also featured in an award-winning safari video and audio tapes.
