Corbett's last book, written shortly before his death. The story of Princess Elizabeth's visit to Tree Tops in Kenya.

It is a fascinating story which tells in the true Corbett manner of the spontaneous exhibition of wild life in its natural setting provided for the Royal Party by the elephants, baboons and other forest creatures".
