More Information:
Possibly John Taylor's most interesting book, Maneaters and Marauders is the cumulation of all the dangerous big-game Taylor met during his thirty-five years as an ivory hunter. During that time, while living in Nyasaland and Mozambique, Taylor was called upon many times with an SOS from the natives to dispatch a man-eating cat or a rogue pachyderm. Taylor's book is full of man-eating lions that carried colorful names, such as the Benga Man-eaters, Maiembi Man-eaters, and Nsungu Man-eaters. In one instance Taylor dispatched, in the time span of a few weeks, a pride of eleven lions that had terrorized an entire district. In addition there are the bad-actor buffalo and elephants that raided native crops or trampled a hapless individual or two. As Taylor himself noted, "Those that have not lived among the natives of East and Central Africa can have no conception of how numerous man-eating lions are in some areas." Written with the high-quality style and flair that we are accustomed to reading from John Taylor.
