This is the tale of a manhunt, not your usual big-game hunting book. Hunter’s Tracks is the exciting story of John Hunter's efforts to capture the shady headman of a gang of ivory poachers and smugglers. Interesting ancedotes are interwoven into the manhunt, like Hunter’s digression on hunting baboons and how they are among the worst destroyers of sisal and maize crops on the African continent. Hunter concludes his book with the tale of one of East Africa's most grandiose safaris taken with an Indian maharaja. Hunter was a fine storyteller, and this collection is one of the best ever on East African hunting, big game, and eccentric characters.
