African Game Trails: The Classic Big Game Safari African Game Trails: The Classic Big Game Safari
By Theodore Roosevelt

This book reads like a loping conversation with our 26th president. He has just returned from his year-long safari in east Africa at the turn of the last century and he is full of stories about hunting and native life. He is also full of dated opinions about the native peoples and what should be done about them (for their own good, of course). The graphic (and endless) hunting scenes are also not for the vegans amongst us. But all this said, this is a bully adventure book. Read More...

Camera Trails in Africa: A Photographer's Safari in British East Africa Camera Trails in Africa: A Photographer's Safari in British East Africa
By Martin Johnson

Johnson, previously a photographer of 'wild men' in the islands of the South Seas, takes his first African safari in the early 1920's. With his wife Osa he journeys through Eastern Africa, photographing and hunting wild animals. Replete with thrilling adventures, near-fatal mishaps, and moments of quiet beauty, this is the story of the beginning of the Johnsons' love affair with Africa. In his graceful, accurate prose, Martin describes the awesome creatures of the savannah, occasionally interjecting a tirade about the poisoning influences of the 'civilization.' A lovely and entertaining book. Read More...

The Nile Tributaries of Abyssinia: And the Sword Hunters of the Hamran Arabs The Nile Tributaries of Abyssinia: And the Sword Hunters of the Hamran Arabs
By Samuel W. Baker

Sir Samuel Baker writes in his introduction, "This being a concise summary of the Nile system, I shall describe twelve months' exploration, during which I examined every individual river that is tributary to the Nile from Abyssinia." But how can you resist a book that includes such chapter sub-headings as "Save me from my Friends" or "Pest Spots of the World"? Baker learned Arabic, took his wife with him and set off into the unknown. Opinionated, witty, and a great hunter; in short the very model of a proper British Explorer of the 19th century.

The Rifle and Hound in Ceylon: Stories from the Field, 1845 to 1853 The Rifle and Hound in Ceylon: Stories from the Field, 1845 to 1853
By Samuel W. Baker

Sir Samuel White Baker had a passion for exploration and big game hunting. This is his first book, and it takes us on a series of hunts in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) from 1845 to 1853. It gives us an insight into the character of the "Great White Hunters," as well as a lot of good technical detail on guns, loads, and hunting techniques in the mid-19th century -- and plenty of action.
