THE LAST OF OLD AFRICA
by Brian Nicholson

2000 Long Beach, 328pp, photos
ISBN: 978-1-57157-205-9

The Last of Old Africa chronicles Nicholson’s career during the heyday of the East African safari.  It tells of his years growing up on a farm in Kenya in pre-WW II days and the exciting characters he met there as a youth: John Boyes, Allan Black, and Robert Foran of Lado ivory fame.  

Nicholson tells of his efforts to eradicate cunning man-killing lions and leopards, and how in the process he became the foremost expert in this macabre field.  Nicholson succeeded in killing more than 30 of these menaces over a 22-year period.  Moreover, Nicholson did as much elephant-control shooting as any man alive today, and he has stories commensurate for a man of his vast experience.  Read about the time a wounded marauder stood directly over Nicholson but, luckily, could not smell or see him.  

Nicholson was instrumental in the formation of the Selous Reserve, Africa's biggest wildlife area, which he patrolled entirely on foot for months at a time and eventually helped open to hunting in 1965.  He recounts the biggest tuskers ever shot in the Selous, including the monster elephant shot by Alice Landreth.
