Roosevelt writes in detail about his year long safari in Africa. His obsevations as a sportsman, scholar, lawmaker and gentleman are as valid now as a century ago. One of the most entertaining books about hunting. A must in an outdoorsman library.

This is a great adventure book and a refreshing break from the oppressive regime of the political correct thought police. Hopefully we won't see the day went books like this a banned.
