“one of the best written, most entertaining books on the African bush which I have read in recent years”

You take pride in what you do and you give the customer the best deal possible.”

ET of Canada


“You have an excellent service indeed and I appreciate that very much.”

EH of Sweden


“Within minutes of the pages having fallen out of the book, I phoned Safari Press to inquire about a replacement text and was told that a replacement copy would be sent to me and that U.P.S. would drop by my house to pick up the damaged text for return to Safari Press.”

“Keeping in mind that my phone conversation took place around 2:15pm est., imagine my shock when before 10:00am est. the next morning, UPS delivered to my house the replacement copy, less than twenty hours had elapsed since my phone call.  NOW THAT’S CUSTOMER SERVICE!”

JTC of Ohio


“I have been positively surprised by your letter which, I must confess, did not expect to receive so promptly.”

JJ of Arizona


“In this day of highly impersonal and non-customer focused companies your reply was a breath of freshness and you have guaranteed that I will be a customer for life.”

JR of Florida


“Someone once said that when you read a book, keep one eye on the author.  I do and did.  You admitted lack of knowledge or experience when proper to do so.  You admitted errors and gave much credit to the knowledge and experience of the professional hunters in Africa.  To me this approach to your writing smacks of truth and good character in the author, and I appreciate it.”

“I’ve just finished (not true; I’ll never finish…) Safari Rifles and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it.”

“In my vast collection of gun books there aren’t any that combine such a mass of fine, first-hand information so well and honestly written as yours.  Your blend of modesty and knowledge is unique.”

“I probably won’t get back to Africa, but you have certainly kept the spark glowing, for which I thank you.”

Gene Hill, Field & Stream Assoc. Editor


“Just want to let you know how much I am enjoying the African Country books.  What a splendid concept, and far from being a collection of “rehashed” old familiars.  A truly beautiful set, and worth every penny.”

KE of New York


“This book is without question the best photographic collection on the world’s top hunters and their collections.  Some of the world’s most exquisitely detailed and designed rooms have been photographed in full color and reproduced here.”

Larry Myhre, The Sioux City Journal
