Wally Johnson spent half a century in Mozambique hunting white gold-ivory. Most men died at this hazardous trade. He's the last one able to tell his story: How he survived the massive bite of a Gabon viper, buffalo gorings, floods, disease, and most dangerous of all-gold fever. He bluffed down 200 armed poachers almost single-handedly, and survived rocket attacks from communist revolutionaries during Mozambique's plunge into chaos in 1975. Wally's words are testimony to an Africa that is now a distant dream.
