More Information
Tony Sanchez is quite likely the world's most prominent living elephant hunter, and in his latest book, he delves into the exploits and adventures of the famous elephant hunters of yesteryear: Walter Bell, John Hunter, Mickey Norton, Bill Buckley, Robert Foran, and James Sutherland. He also discusses those obscure elephant hunters who shot as many if not more tuskers but, because they never wrote books, are not as well known. These intrepid hunters include Aurelio Rossi, Otto Krohnert, Billy Pickering, and Theodore Lefebvre and Etienne Canonne (Frenchmen who hunted in West Africa).

The late Harry Manners, also a very famous hunter himself, wrote a chapter on Tony Sanchez's elephant-hunting escapades--the last piece Manners ever wrote and something that has never before been published. Parading in and out of the pages of this interesting book are the most famous and illustrious characters to have been drawn to the mysterious Dark Continent in search of riches. Only a handful left Africa with more money than they came with, and quite a few left with a lot less, and some paid the ultimate price. Being an ivory hunter was never easy, and making a living off it was a major feat in itself! However, in terms of sheer adventure and excitement, no other job on earth could ever come close to the ultimate fulfillment of hunting after Africa's white gold.

Illustrated with dozens and dozens of period photos from long-forgotten archives, this newest book from Tony Sanchez is the most interesting ever to emerge on that intrepid and now finished breed of man: Elephant Hunters, Men of Legend.
