Cottar: The Exception was the Rule
Charles Cottar, a fighter to the fingertips, is the kind of man they don't make any more. He came to Africa from the American west at a time when no fences and no rules were the rule. He brought that "can do" spirit with him. He was a superb shot with anything that fired a bullet. Although he lost the use of one eye and one leg, he did more hunting with the remaining one eye and leg than most men do with two. This rugged, purposeful figure was imbued with a dauntless courage that came through in his lifelong big game hunting adventures as well as in his richly detailed and fascinating stories. His style is cogent, observant and vibrant. He can inform and entertain at the same time. This book will create an atmosphere like you've never before experienced.
Excerpted from a review in Africa Safari Times: Charles Cottar's book, the hunting accounts and adventures, comes like a fresh breeze and makes for fascinating reading. It is not a book for the fainthearted and all of the 130 illustrations are of remarkable quality. The reviewer did not want to spoil anyone's reading of the book by revealing its contents. Suffice it to say that "THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST FASCINATING HUNTING BOOKS EVER PUBLISHED." It tells much of what was once on this dark continent.
