"Giorgio Grasselli is a well-known professional hunter. But, as the author emphasises, this is not purely a hunting book. It is also the story of his life in Africa, written with honesty, humour and often with irony. The threads that bind his story, include his love of nature, its big wild animals in particular, his interest in the indigenous people among whom he has lived and the close bond of affection he feels towards the old white people of Africa. The author is a connoisseur of Africa (he hates the word expert, so often used and abused of these days) and some of these "expert" problems emerge forcibly from the pages of this book. From an early age, Giorgio knew he was destined to live in Africa. He was attracted to hunting because of its association with adventure and it was this search for adventure that drove him to live in vast, untamed wilderness areas. Some of the countries he lived and hunted in were Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Zambia, CAR and Sudan. ...Enriched by more than 130 photographs, mostly in colour, many of which are extraordinary and have never been published." "Not kill and kill some more, but rather they are highlights of a most fascinating life - one that comes from decades of living and hunting in various African countries." This book was first published in Italian as Tramonti africani: Storie di una vita avventurosa, Bizzocchi 2005.
