Boards lightly rubbed and tanned; gift inscription to half-title; slightest damp-ripple to prelims. Good condition. "I suppose there can be few if any men in all Africa possessing a deeper knowledge and wider experience of bush lore in all its phases and in his prime he held all the qualities requisite to give effect to that knowledge and experience; a powerful frame, an iron constitution; cool courage and quiet determination. In addition, his complete mastery of the local Bantu language, and acquaintance with their customs, earned him exceptional liking and respect among the tribal natives. His unique exploit in killing, single-handed, and armed only with a knife, a full grown male lion which had seized, and was carrying him off, was in itself a feat rendering superfluous any further tributes to his rare courage and coolness; but it is worth remarking that in many hazards - happily all safely surmounted - which he has since incurred in the course of his duties, his nerve has shown itself to be just as calm and steady as it was when he underwent that terrible experience." - From the Foreword by J. Stevenson-Hamilton.

Harry Wolhuter was a legendary ranger in the Kruger National Park and completed 44 years of service before retiring in 1948. Born in Beaufort West, Cape, Wolhuter lived a life of freedom in the veld. From the time he could first remember he was a hunter, with a catapult, an air gun, finally graduating to an old muzzle loader. He and his friends made their own gunpowder and percussion caps from match -heads. At 14 he left school and started work in a trading store in Maraisburg, Transvaal. He later became a shepherd, a big game hunter, and, during the Anglo -Boer War a member of the colourful band of mounted soldiers known as Steinacker's Horse. His "Memories of a Game Ranger? is written in a most readable and modest manner was originally published in 1948, the year he retired after forty five years in The Kruger Park. It is from this book that we learn that on one occasion Wolhuter was riding on horseback along what is today the Lindanda Road , when two lions attacked him shortly after nightfall. Toppled from his horse, one of lions seized him by the shoulder, and dragged him almost 100 metres, into the bush. At this point, the semi-conscious ranger managed to retrieve his sheath knife from his belt and stabbed the lion. The mortally wounded lion then dropped Wolhuter who managed to climb into a tree before the second lion came after him. Wolhuter believes he was saved by his dog, Bull, whose persistent barking at the second lion distracted it. Wolhuter?s assistants then arrived, and carried him back to camp. After resting a day, he was carried in a litter, to get medical assistance. The party arrived at Komatipoort four days later. Wolhuter was patched up by a doctor and then sent by train to Barberton hospital where he stayed for several weeks. A a stirring and fascinating account of the early days of wild life protection.

Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. Astley-Maberly, C.T. (illustrator). Seventh Edition. From the author's Preface: SINCE my retirement on completion of forty-four years' service as a ranger in the Kruger National Park, a number of my friends have suggested that I ought to record in book form some of the experiences of a life which in many ways has been an unusual one, and to me at least full of interest. After considerable hesitation, I eventually yielded to persuasion, and the following pages are the result. They deal mainly with a world very different from that of today, for the changes which have taken place in Low-Veld life and conditions exceed those which have occurred anywhere else in South Africa. What, only forty years ago, was a wild, trackless, and almost unknown country, has now, thanks to the attraction of the Kruger National Park, become a popular resort for visitors not only from every part of South Africa, but from overseas as well. I felt, however, that my rather promiscuous notes required expert editing, and I am doubly grateful to Mr. C. T. Astley-Maberly not only for having so ably perfornied this task, but for having illustrated the book. Few other professional artists are so well acquainted with wild life, or have spent so much time in delineating it in its natural surroundings; in fact, in the early days of the Park he was accustomed to wander about alone on a bicycle sketching such animals as he met; a feat which would not be permitted nowadays! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------- Perfect reading copy. 313 pages plus index. Beautiful drawing throughout. Introducton by J. Stephenson-Hamilton, late warden of the Kruger National Park ------------------ Orders over $100.00 are shipped using tracked courier delivery services. Size: Approx 6½ " Wide and 9½ " Tall.
