The Wanderers

by Hoffman Theron van Zijl

This is the story of the wanderings of two lifelong friends who had the courage to live their dreams in some of the last remaining wilderness areas left in southern Africa. The days when you could wander freely throughout the Dark Continent on your own, in search of great adventure, were fading fast when South Africans Hoffman Theron van Zijl and Gerhard Bolt came of age and set out on a series of adventures, together and on their own, in the 1970s and 1980s. Their main goal was to hunt dangerous game, but they were just as interested in exploring untrammelled... Read More

Deadly Encounters

by Craig Boddington

Boddington has done a masterful job of unearthing the facts and sometimes gory details of what happens when a nasty with sharp teeth, strong claws, blunt hoofs, or colossal strength decides to close in on a hunter and see the business through to a bloody, pulpy end. His stories of hunts gone wrong include wild lions or those found in enclosures; bull elephants in musth or cranky cows on the defensive; leopards who do not take kindly to being shot; bears-no matter what size or color; and "tame" water buffaloes that have taken over the neighborhood and now see humans as intruders.

Elephant!

So much has been written about the elephant hunters of yesteryear that there is niche of collectors who only concentrate on this genre.

However, very little is ever written on modern elephant hunting. And strange as it may seem, many of the largest elephants shot in the history of Africa have actually been shot... Read More

Ask the Grizzly/Brown Bear Guides

When writing the manuscript for Ask the Brown Bear/Grizzly Guides, the author discovered far more interest in the big bears than for any of the other animals in the Ask The Guides series so far. The interviews tended to run longer because of the enthusiasm of the guides for the unique hunts they do, and, consequently, the length of this book is noticeably longer. Many of the guides had...
