This is the stuff of legends the true story of the life of Trader Horn. Down on his luck in old age, Horn recounts his wild youth as an ivory trader in central Africa, journeying into jungles teaming with buffalo, gorillas, and man-eating leopards; liberating an Isorga princess from captivity; navigating treacherous rivers; freeing slaves; and meeting Cecil Rhodes, the founder of Rhodesia. Trader Horn is a vivid and unforgettable portrait of a vanished period in African history. An amazing book.... It casts a spell over one.” The New York Times Book Review
