This is the detailed autobiography of professional hunter Terry Irwin. "Irwin describes his early years as a schoolboy hunting in Botswana .his time as a prospector, and later, his employment by the Tanzania Game Department as an elephant control officer. Although he prefers to keep his total elephant bag to himself, Irwin's feats are legendary: .thousands of miles on foot on safaris across remote parts of Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya and the Selous game Reserve; hunting 'problem' lions and leopards, as well as elephants; and the creation of his own safari company Kiburuzo Safaris.

The bulk of Irwin's career was spent in Tanzania which he left after the suppression of hunting by President Nyerere. A fascinating and exciting account of a very varied and wide-ranging career. This is the first trade edition of Volume 27 in the Classics in African Hunting Series.
