Order a copy of "Hunter" by J.A. Hunter. You can thank me later.
How much later? Don
After you read the damn book.
I apologize, you did not say to read the damn thing just order it. Don
I looked it up….. was $70 on Amazon. Little pricey for my blood, but it does sound good. I’ll keep an eye out on Thriftbooks.
What's it about? Not paying $70 for a book nowadays. I'll probably read the synopsis sometime.
What? No Kindel version? Hit Bookfinder, good used versions $10 and a little more shipped. It is not a new book.
Aha! Haven’t used Bookfinder before. Lots of cheap copies there. Thanks!
I like books. If there is one out there that strikes my interest, 70 bucks is cheap as long as it costs that much everywhere I look. I have spent a lot more for books out of print for decades and felt great joy just to find them!
The book, new hardback is $29.99 from Amazon. I got mine last week, and it is still at that price. It was originally published in 1954 if I remember correctly. J.A. Hunter killed hundreds of Lions, Elefants, and other game. Great read.
"Written in the 1950s, Hunter recounts the career of John A. Hunter, a professional big-game hunter and former chairman of Tanganyika National Parks. J A. Hunter led a life of adventure, but, perhaps, the most astonishing tale in this book is his incredible adventures while hunting rhino. As a game ranger, he was ordered by the Tanganyikan government to clear out dozens of rogue rhinos from the area around Makueni, and the accounts of his experiences are spine-tingling. Hunter hunted throughout East Africa-for bongo in the Ituri rain forest (former Zaire), lion in Masailand (Kenya), and the man-killing buffalo near Thomson's Falls with his favorite dog (Kenya).
I read it years a go and recall it being very good. I know i bought it used, might even be a first edition. I'll have to dig around for it and maybe read again.
I enjoy reading. Wifey and I always read to our kids,at bedtime, when they were small. Happy to say my son and his wife read bedtime books to the grandsons
