From Sailor to Professional Hunter
Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Zimbabwe. John is one of the few Professional Hunters to boast a continuous 50-year career hunting in Africa. It is impossible in a few words to describe the wealth of information and number of hunting stories recounted in this adventure packed volume. John's love of adventure, humor, courage and pluck all come through. The big game hunting will both entertain and delight, as well as educate. If you want a look at hunting in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Botswana and finally Zimbabwe, this is the book. Every professional big game hunter must have the power to make believe, a love of romance, a touch of adventure, lots of courage and finally, lots of pluck. And every big game hunting book, if it is to become a true classic, must have a special quality, a special way in which it differs from and stands out from others of its genre. This is true about FROM SAILOR TO PROFESSIONAL HUNTER. Excerpted from the review by Dibatag: The author had the reputation of obtaining excellent trophies for his clients. His sheer enthusiasm for the task at hand was infectious, and his knowledge of all aspects of life in the bush was expansive. ... This autobiography makes for most interesting reading and will be enjoyed, not only by those who were fortunate enough to know the man, but also by all who have enjoyed the thrills and hazards of Big Game Hunting in Africa."
