HEAT, THIRST & IVORY

 

By Fred Everett. Hardcover with dust jacket, wrapped in plastic, $50.

Fred Everett was born and raised in the northern territories of what was then known as the Bechuanaland Protectorate, a place renowned even today for its game. His backyard was the Chobe and the Okavango Swamps, where Everett was free to roam and where he learned to hunt with an old 7x57mm Mauser.

In more than seven decades spent in the African bush, Fred’s adventures rival those of Allan Quartermain, “the rifle-toting, native-befriending, treasure-seeking hero of King Solomon’s Mines.” Fred’s writing and stories are so good, Heat, Thirst & Ivory has been called one of the best safari books ever written. And, unlike Quartermain, all of Fred’s stories are true.

FOOTSTEPS OF AN IVORY HUNTER

 

By Ian Nyschens and Cheryl Nyschens Morck. Hardcover, wrapped in slipcase, $85.

Those who have read Months of the Sun know that Ian Nyschens’s life is one of the most incredible stories ever recorded in the history of African elephant and ivory hunting. It is fair to say that no man since World War II has had a more compelling tale. Since the publication of his first book, numerous people who knew Ian have said that not all of his incredible adventures were written up in Months of the Sun. The fact is that almost as soon as his first book came out, Ian started working on the sequel. This second tome gives us insights into the “end game” on some of the most interesting but unfinished stories of Ian’s previous book.

DEATH IN THE LONG GRASS

 

By Peter Capstick. Hardcover with dust jacket, $25.

Based on Capstick’s own experiences and the personal accounts of his colleagues, Death in the Long Grass portrays the great killers of the African bush—not only the lion, leopard, and elephant, but the primitive rhino and the crocodile waiting for its unsuspecting prey, the titanic hippo and the Cape buffalo charging like an express train out of control.

DEATH IN THE SILENT PLACES

 

By Peter Capstick. Hardcover with dust jacket, $25.

Already recognized as a master of adventure writing for his classic Death in the Long Grass, Capstick now turns from his own exploits to those of some of the greatest hunters of the past in Death in the Silent Places. With his characteristic color and flair, he recalls the extraordinary careers of hunting men like Colonel J.H. Patterson and Colonel Jim Corbett, who stalked legendary man-eaters through the silent darkness on opposite sides of the world; men like Karamojo Bell, acknowledged as the greatest elephant hunter of all time; men like the valiant Sasha Siemel, who tracked killer jaguars though the Matto Grosso armed only with a spear. With an authenticity gained by having shared the experiences he writes of, Peter Capstick eloquently recreates the acrid taste of terror in the mouth of a man whose gun has jammed as a lion begins his charge, the exhilaration of tracking and finding a long-sought prey, the bravery and even nobility of performing under circumstances of primitive and savage stress, with death all around in the silent places of the wilderness.
