GHOSTS OF TSAVO: STALKING THE MYSTERY LIONS OF EAST AFRICA. By Philip Caputo.

2002 1st edition. 8vo (155 x 235mm). Ppxii,276. Colour and b/w photographs. Black cloth spine over brown paper-covered boards, spine titled in gilt.

Made famous by J.H. Patterson's Man Eaters of Tsavo, the lions of this area are larger than usual, and the males maneless. This book examines their history and describes recent field studies. "A riveting adventure travel narrative that tracks four scientists attempting to unlock the secrets of these fierce man-eating lions, Ghosts of Tsavo is filled with face-to-face encounters and narrow escapes and celebrates the beauty, stealthy cunning, and awesome strength of these elusive, magnificent beasts". "I finished the Ghosts of Tsavo in a sweat. Combining a compelling scientific puzzle and a terrifying history along with dazzling descriptive passages and a few slapstick episodes of contemporary adventure, this book - even at its most contemplative - literally consumes the reader. It is a man-eater". (Tim Cahill). Chapters include: The man-eater of Mfuwe; Legends; A trip to the museum; Chasing the chimera; Why the man-eaters did what they did.
