With a Foreword by President Theodore Roosevelt

"Mr. Selous is the last of the big-game hunters of South Africa; the last of the mighty hunters whose experiences lay in the greatest hunting ground which this world has seen since civilized man has appeared therein."

"His book is a genuine contribution to hunting lore and to natural history. It should be welcomed by every lover of the chase and by every man who cares for the wild, free life of the wilderness. It should be no less welcome to all who are interested in the most formidable and interesting of the beasts that dwell in our world today."

--- Theodore Roosevelt

REVIEWS:

DAILY TELEGRAPH.—"This intensely interesting volume is not only as exciting as any book of adventure, but packed from cover to cover with valuable facts and theories that no other living man could communicate with equal authority."

EVENING STANDARD.—"It is impossible to give more than a very slight idea of the wealth of interest there is in this volume for hunters and naturalists alike. From cover to cover it is full of thoughtful observation and graphic description."

COUNTRY LIFE.—"There is not a page in this well-written and deeply-informed book which cannot be studied with pleasure and profit by the average reader. To the man who knows Africa the volume is extraordinarily interesting from cover to cover. It is destined, we have little doubt, to be numbered among the classics of African literature."
