About this title


FOREWORD I SPEAK of Africa and goIden joys the joy of wandering through lonely lands the joy of hunting the mighty and terrible Iords of the wilderness, the cunning, the wary, and the grim. In these greatest of the worlds great hunting-grounds there are mountain peaks whose suns are dazzling under the equatorial sun swamps where the slime oozes and bubbles and festers in the steaming heat lakes Iike seas skies that burn above deserts where the iron desolation is shrouded from view by the wavering nockery of the mirage vast grassy plains where palins and thorn-trees fringe the dwindling streams mighty rivers rushing out of the heart of the continent through the sadness of endless marshes forests of gorgeous beauty, where death broods in the dark and silent depths. There are regions as healrhy as the northland and other regions, radiant with bright-hued flowers, birds and butterflies, odorous with sweet and heay scents, but, treacherous in their beauty, and sinister to human life. On the land and in the water there are dread brutes that feed on the flesh of man ancl among the lower things, rhat crawl, and fly, and sting, and bite, he finds swarming foes far more evil and deadly than any bears or reptile foes that kill his crops and his cattle, foes before which he himseif perishes in his hundreds of thousands...

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 outdoors man, with such works as Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail and African Game Trails capturing his rough and adventurous 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.
