THE LAST IVORY HUNTER: THE SAGA OF WALLY JOHNSON. By Peter Hathaway Capstick.

(1988) later reprint. 8vo (159 x 240mm). Ppxx,220. B/w photographs. Black boards, spine titled in gilt.

Fifty years' African hunting, based on 150 hours of interviews between Capstick and Johnson. "A hunter since 1926, Wally Johnson conducted his last professional safari in Zambia, ...when he was over seventy. ...The Last Ivory Hunter is certainly not an arbitrary title. On a simple chronological basis, Wally probably was the last commercial hunter of ivory. He certainly had contemporaries, but almost everyone of note is already dead. Nobody, I think, who is still alive, has spent the sheer years Wally has in pursuit of 'white gold.' He is the doyen of that noble band of adventurers who lived the hard, hungry, weary way in the malaria-ridden expanses of Africa. His story bears witness for posterity to African hunting and the men who lived the life that can no longer be known. And, as you learn of Wally's adventures in this book, you will marvel that he is alive at all, let alone that he was able to record his amazing life before it was too late."
