A very scarce book with its main claim to fame it being about lion. Lion hunting, lion tracking, lion shooting and more lions! A delightful book on hunting lions in a part of Africa where they are by all accounts very aggressive. The author used a .500 caliber gun with lead bullets. In addition oryx hunting and some adventures with warthogs. An absolute rarity in Africana and big-game hunting, this book almost never appears for sale!
