Denis Lyell's first book. Covers just about all the game of what is today Zambia. Sable, rhino, elephant, lion, leopard, roan, kudu, buffalo, and much more. Scarce, coming up for sale every now and then only. Czech writes "Lyell recounts his experiences in the big game lands of Rhodesia with exciting details. All manner of game was collected, including elephant near Lake Chiuta, hippopotamus on the Shire River, rhinoceros on the Luangwa River, and lion. In addition, sable impala, kudu, eland, lechwe, waterbuck and other antelopes were also taken."
