"Quite simply, Lyell was a man born too late. ...By the time he reached adulthood in the late 1890's, the heyday of sport on the Dark Continent was past, and he had to content himself with a fleeting taste of what life must have been like in those halcyon times when the veldt teemed with countless animals, when passing herds of impala, zebra, wildebeest, and other species stretched from horizon to horizon". (From the introduction by Jim Casada). That said, Lyell accomplished a great deal, hunted a great deal and wrote accounts of both his doings and those of the older generation with whom he was well acquainted. Chapters include: Tea-planting life in Eastern India; Early days in Nyasaland (Malawi); Days after big game; Remarks on elephants, travel, and natives; Elephant hunting; About rhino, buffalo, hippo, and lion; A few experiences with antelopes; Various animals; Some strange incidents and contrasts; Sporting methods, rifles, trophies, carries, etc.
