HUNTER
by J. A. Hunter

1999 Long Beach, 263pp, illus., 6x9, hardcover, dj
ISBN: 978-1-57157-243-1

This is John Hunter's best-known book and the one that set him on the path of becoming an internationally recognized name in the post-World War II, African big-game hunting scene. Written in the 1950s, Hunter recounts the career of a professional big-game hunter from before WW I till after WW II. Perhaps the most astonishing tale in this book is John Hunter’s incredible rhino-hunting adventures. As Game Ranger, he was charged by the Tanganyika government to clear out dozens of rogue rhinos from Makueni.

John Hunter's career took him throughout East Africa: for bongo in the Ituri rain forest (former Zaire), lion in Masailand (Kenya), and man-killing buffalo near Thomson's Falls with his favorite dog (Kenya). During his long professional hunting career, he went after a host of other dangerous critters, all vividly described in this book. Learn how Hunter became a PH and what he felt were the most dangerous animals in Africa. His descriptions of the early safaris to the most pristine of African wildernesses, such as the Ngorongoro Crater, are lively and of such a quality that the reader gets transported back in time to the heyday of African hunting.

This book is internationally recognized as being one of the all-time classics on African hunting.
