Excerpt from African Game Trails: An Account of the African Wanderings of an American Hunter-Naturalist

I speak of Africa and golden joys the joy of wander ing through lonely lands the joy of hunting the mighty and terrible lords of the wilderness, the cunning, the wary, and the grim.

In these greatest of the world's great hunting grounds there are mountain-peaks whose snows are dazzling under the equatorial sun; swamps where the slime oozes and bubbles and festers in the steaming heat; lakes like seas; skies that burn above deserts where the iron desolation is shrouded from View by the wavering mockery of the mirage; vast grassy plains where palms 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.

I thought the latest reproduction would be the greatest! How wrong was I. The 1 star rating does not reflect on Theodore Roosevelt, but on the way General Books reproduces the book. 1. there are no pictures: each missing picture we lose at least thousand words. 2. there are garbled text at various places. 3. no table of content nor index. In the beginning, General Books stated that all these are results from their Optical Characters Recognition software. The OCR is used with a robot to turn the pages of old books to scan in the text only. Therefore this book is simply like a poorly edited text portion only of an original of well prepared word manuscript with beautiful pictures. As a true book lover I won't buy any book from General Books and recommend you avoiding its production as well.
