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.
