More Information
Fred Everett was born & grew up in the northern territories of what was then known as the Bechuanaland Protectorate, a place renowned even today for its game. His backyard was the Chobe & the Okavango Swamps, where Everett was free to roam & where he learned to hunt with an old 7x57mm Mauser. As Everett says, "So I began my career as a hunter in November 1932. Unable to adjust to the world among my own people or even a life at home, I shed the trappings of civilization like a python sloughing its skin. I moved into the bush among the animals that accepted me in my role of predator. Elephants were the only lucrative animals to hunt. As I would be poaching, I would have to be selective & take on the largest ivory, for I could not afford to draw attention to my activities by leaving too many carcasses strewn around." Frederick William Everett is known as one of the last great professional ivory hunters still alive today. In fact Peter Capstick once said of Fred Everett, "He is truly one of the last grand characters of the African bush." During his long hunting career, he hunted in Bechuanaland, Southern Rhodesia & the Wankie Game Reserve, Mozambique, & Sudan, shooting scores of elephants. An unusual life & a great story; in fact, we?ve had customers call us to say that Heat, Thirst, & Ivory is the best safari book they have ever read. This is volume 38 in Safari Press' Classics in African Hunting Series. Illus. by J. Enrique Lacuesta Bone.
