The authors are Selous, Baker, Kirby, Neumann, and Litledale, the most expert and fearless hunters ever to track big game. Townsend Whelen, himself a famous hunter, has been collecting these stories for years. His selections are the best and most exciting accounts of absolutely accurate true adventures. All these stories are now buried in works out of print or in limited editions unavailable to the hunting enthusiast.
These tales open an almost entirely unknown world of sport: that of hunting man-killing big game alone, without the vast equipment and caravans used by modern, organided hunters and explorers. The authors tracked in unexplored countries, living and surviving and earning a livelihood by the rifle alone. The comments of the writers on the technical sides of their rifles ammunition and equipment are extremely valuable to all hunters.
