Rendezvous in the Bush
Henry T. Folsom
From a father's safari in British East Africa in 1913, to a young man's first Tanzania safari in 1971 and his safaris in Africa into the 1990s, Rendezvous in the Bush shares the joys and thrills of African big game hunting over the past decades. Just as his father hunted with the noted PH George Outram, a number of Hank's safaris were with legendary PH David Ommanney who kindly also authored the Foreword. This book is filled with hunting stories, rich in incident and character and descriptions of safari life so integral to the hunt. A Day in the Classic Safari, You Shot Too High, The Professional, Crisis, The Year of the Buffalo, A Cold Morning in the Swamp - these are just six of the 27 evocative, exciting chapters in this memorable new book.
Most African hunters have memories of long stalks in the sun for some antelope, of moving oh-so-carefully with pounding heart into the bush for a wounded lion or a hidden buffalo, or of finally dropping that coveted kudu on the last safari day. Hank shares all of these experiences in such a way that old-timer and newcomer alike will want to plan their own Rendezvous in the Bush.
"The book begins with some wonderful reminiscing and cutting philosophizing and it ends with same. In between it describes the African hunting experiences of a man that has really been around Africa more than most African hunters. ... This is one of those books that leave you surprised when you turn the page and unexpectedly find yourself staring at the words 'the end.'" Africa Safari Times.
