Dr. Frank Hibben is a legend in the field of hunting. As the oldest living Weatherby Award winner, he has been on a grand total of thirty-six safaris! From his first safari in 1949 to the most recent one in 1997, he has been to almost every African country and has hunted every major and minor game animal of the Dark Continent. From his early safaris with Andrew Holmberg until his recent hunts in Botswana, there have been very few animals he has not taken. Before Chad, Somalia, and Kenya banned hunting, he captured such unusual animals as the eastern bongo, dibatag gazelle, and addax. In addition, he has an impressive collection of ivory and what is generally regarded as the biggest leopard to ever come from Kenya. These hunts and many more are described in this new book, which contains the best from his earlier title Hunting In Africa as well as seventeen previously unpublished stories of African big-game hunting and adventure. You will not want to miss this well-written and exciting account! Illustrated with dozens of color photos.
