Summary of Material:
From Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, and Tanzania come some of the most unbelievable tales of courage and adventure to have happened in recent times. Read about a cunning monster-size man-eating lion that finds six victims before being killed by a safari client, or about an "almost dead" buffalo that kills a PH in Tanzania who disregarded the advice of his trackers. Then there was a slightly wounded but highly agitated leopard that sliced through a slew of people in mere seconds. In another tale a safari client thinks he can kill buffalo with a small caliber rifle because his gunsmith said so! Find out what happened. These and Prothero?s own safari adventures are mixed together in an unusual, exciting, and well-written book.
