HUNTING IN AFRICA. By Frank C. Hibben.

(1964) 1965 new edition. Pp191. B/w photographs.

"Frank C. Hibben, who has hunted on four continents, writes of his safaris through jungles, deserts, plains and mountains, hunting the most dangerous animals in the world. The author takes us with him as he tracks lions in the bush and a herd of dangerous Cape buffalo; baits the vicious leopard, dodges the stupid rhino and barely escapes an elephant stampede. We follow the difficult paths of rare gazelles and antelopes - the forest sitatunga... the dibitag, which inhabits the arid stretches of East Africa; and Nile lechwe,which lives in inaccessible swamps; and we also venture into the treacherous Sahara for the addax. Mr. Hibben introduces us to the customs and life of the natives, the work of the white hunters, the problems of wild game conservation and the history of hunting." Chapters include:- African hunting past and present; The white hunter and his animals; Two out of three; Elephant stampede; Walk around a rhino; Rhino versus bulldozer; Three bad buffs; King of the cats; Let sleeping lions lie; Leopard Bwana; The killer leopard of Manyara; Hippo trouble; Hunting the Sahara of Beau Geste; Big as a rhino, fast as a rabbit; Africa's rarest and most beautiful animal; Rare African trophy; Ghost of the forest; Bingo on Bongo.
