From Locust Control Officer to Game Warden. From Somalia to Uganda to Ethiopia. All during the time when game was plentiful. Yes, Peter's lifetime in Africa was one long safari. A locust control officer establishes gangs that destroy eggs deposited by locusts. But when locusts move in antelope move out. When antelope move out, lions become man-eaters. The other job of the locust control officer is to rid the area of man-eaters and marauders - by himself. Then there was the month that Peter was ordered to crop 150 elephants from a marauding herd. There was the time when Peter's life became rosy indeed when a 110 pound tusker stared at him from a close range. Then the animal turned to charge - but it had only one tusk! Here is the story of a man who spent the long prime of his life on ONE LONG SAFARI. 7 x 10 format. Over 200 photographic illustrations, 7 maps.
