Legends of the Field
W. R. Foran
You don't have to be blessed with money to go on an old time safari. You have only to open the pages of this book. Foran talks about the names familiar to all hunters-nine of the most famous early elephant hunters in Africa-Samuel Baker, F.C. Selous, Arthur Neumann, W.C. Oswell, Jim Sutherland, W.D.M. Bell, F. Jackson, as well as about some names that soon will be like Andy Anderson and Samaki Salmon. The golden age of adventure truly comes alive again with the stories of these nine intrepid big game hunters. This book is an extraordinary look at hunting during its golden age. Moreover it is an extraordinary memoir by a man whose comments will certainly have an impact on future generations of big game hunters.
Reviewed by "Dibatag": This is an enthralling book, possibly even better than (Foran's) first. Yes, this is simply a must for anyone who has followed the trail of the African elephant."
Reviewed by Game Trails (Journal of the Dallas Safari Club): ...in a number of cases, Foran actually met and knew some of these legends, and he was something of an expert himself. This gives the treatment of these great hunters something of an air of authority without being stuffy, and it gives his prose an air of the old Africa hand that he was. ... For several of these hunters, LEGENDS OF THE FIELD is the first real examination of their adventure-filled lives."
