This is an absolutely amazing book, full of beautiful photographs many of them dating back to the early 1900's. It is a very well presented look at the way attitudes have changed in East Africa, from the early hunters and photos of Karen Blixen, her guests and characters familiar from her books, excerpts from Pattersons diaries, and looking at how game control has evolved and the problems now facing the environment and game wardens as human impact interrupts nature's balance.
I however, most enjoy this book for it's photos. There are some amazing photos in here, made all the more so when you consider how long ago they were taken and the equipment that the photographers were using. I cannot recommend this book enough.

This is a book that provides amazing insight about the slaughter of wild animals in epic proportions and how a once self-sustaining ecologically balanced paradise with an infinite supply of flora and fauna became endangered.

It is an essential read for anyone trying to understand the reasons that created the conflict between man and wild animal and why we must attempt to reverse this horrific tragedy for the sake of our future.
