It was towards noon on March 1, 1898, that I first found myself entering the narrow and somewhat dangerous harbour of Mombasa, on the east coast of Africa. Read the first page

A fantastic true story about man eating lions in Africa. I thought the book was out of print but was surprised to find it available on Amazon. I also noted that the book was reprinted by Amazon on good quality paper, better than that found in most paper backs.

A great read. Incredible story told in measured, factual and undramatic english. Yet despite this it has to be one of the most interesting books I've read. The book does a good job of 'painting' a memory of being a part of truly wild Africa that will never exist again. The underlying irony in this book is the men that got to experience Africa as a truly beautiful and untamed continent were the same people who set out to 'civilise' it: With their trade and transportation network they made a huge contribution to ensuring future generations will never experience Africa in the same way again.

The Man Eaters story is told in a fairly no nonsense style and brings the horror of the lion attacks almost matter of factly but engrossing all the same. The rest of the stories didn't sit well with me as the author seemed to wander around the land shooting mostly for the purpose of skins occasionaly for food.I'm so glad we've changed our attitude to these wonderful animals. Seemed to be a lot of wasted paper in the production of this edition with large amounts of blank space and overly large book altogehter.

Do you know what an OCR published book is? No? Neither did I before I was conned into purchasing this virtually unreadable text. To add insult to injury, the scanner has added the library T's and C's, from which it was purloined, to the text. [Harvard College Widener Library, Cambridge, MA.]. I find it unbelievable that a company like Amazon sells such poor quality, and legally dubious, products. At least, when I return it, it is guaranteed to be unread.
