One Long Safari (ADDITIONAL SHIPPING REQUIRED)
From the age of eight, Peter Hay knew that his future lay in Africa. Indeed, he worked hard to ensure that his life would be ONE LONG SAFARI. Peter's career started as a Desert Locust Control Officer. If you don't think that's exciting, remember that when locust infestations cause small antelope to scatter, lions become man-eaters and must be dealt with by the control officer! At one point, Peter was being PAID to shoot lions by day and night. Ditto for some other members of the big five.for example, the month when he had to crop 147 elephants because they were raiding farmers' crops. Peter (who was game warden for over 15 years in Uganda during the period when PHs like John Kingsley-Heath were active) never turned pro because he always wanted to be the hunter! No matter how many animals one shoots on control, when that big trophy is standing right in front of you, the hunt takes on a different appearance. Peter Hay spent the prime of his life on ONE LONG SAFARI. The book is so good that African Hunter magazine gave it almost a full page book review! You won't put this down. Peter Hay hunted from Bunyoro, Kingdom of the Elephant (in Uganda), to Ethiopia and in between in many remote places that he called home. But when Peter was there, the place was still only a blank on the map to the rest of us. He is one of the few to have actually hunted extensively for stock and man-eating bush lions in Somaliland and Ethiopia and elephants throughout Uganda. We're fortunate that the author found the time to make his story available for our reading enjoyment.
