With a Gun in Good Country
Through a dazzling series of stories the magic of Africa comes alive. Manning grew up in Africa and was a game cropping ranger, a professional (then known as white) hunter and later a wildlife biologist. He is a bit of a combination of professional hunter and a man who enjoys hunting for himself for the sheer adventure. The good country through which he hunted, the countries from which the stories in this book emerge include Zambia, Zimbabwe, Congo, Botswana and South Africa. While the way of life described herein has certainly changed, these memorable big game hunting adventures make the magic of Africa come alive again.
Reviewed in Gun Week: The book provides a look at how (hunting) used to be, how it is, and possibly how it will be. It also gives the reader an insight as to why anyone who has ever hunted in Africa wants to return. ... This is a book any hunter will enjoy. ... For those actually planning (a hunt), it is recommended reading. It provides excellent coverage of the countries discussed and what a hunter can expect of the countries, the game and the people. The coverage of Zambia is particularly good.
