More Information
John McGowan has been dipping his pen, rifles and hunting books in Africa since 1952. He's not a professional, but his trophy collection certainly looks like it. He's carted rifles through dust, brush, forest and plain in order to carry out a variety of big game. You will have to read the book to find out how many 100-pound elephants he's taken. (Clue: two on one safari!). Lots of adventures with the big five, lots of kudu (a 58-incher and more) as well as great plains game and one venture after a huge tiger. He's also an astute judge of animal behavior, noting that its considerate of the lion to knock you unconscious when it charges because then you won't feel anything when it chews on you. John has hunted with the pros from the golden era through to today's modern pros. From the plains of Tanzania (when it was Tanganyika), to Kenya, Central Africa, Uganda and Zambia in the old days and to those same countries and more southerly ones in recent times, John relates stories of danger, excitement, rewarding experiences and laughs at some of his blunders in the field while giving thanks for a few more fortunate turns of fate. This book is a sure cure for Hunter's Heart Disease!
