Considered an elephant hunting classic. Czech says "In 1867, Royal Navy lieutenant E. D. Young trekked to Africa to find the great missionary-explorer David Livingstone who was reported to be lost while searching for the origins of the Nile. Henry Faulkner joined the expedition primarily to hunt. His efforts collecting elephant, buffalo and hippo in present day Malawi and around Lake Nyasa are duly captured in this rather scarce narrative."
