Wanderings of an Elephant Hunter

by Bell, W.D.M. (''Karamojo'')

Condition: See description

Klassiker af den legendariske elefantjæger 2001This is the first book written by W. D. M. Bell, an intrepid adventurer, who was known far and wide as “Karamojo” Bell for his extraordinary elephant-hunting exploits in the Karamoja Province of Uganda and elsewhere. Wanderings, considered by many to be the greatest of all elephant books by the greatest of all elephant hunters, is a series of elephant-hunting essays and stories during the glory days of Bell’s career. It gives Bell’s experiences in Uganda, Sudan, Ethiopia, Central Africa, and West Africa. Bell’s approach to elephant hunting was unusual for his day and time. He studied the anatomy of elephants in order to establish the trajectory of bullets from any angle, and Wanderings of an Elephant Hunter includes the diagrams of shot placement, perfected by Bell, that made this book so desirable. Foremost an elephant title, Wanderings also includes tales of derring-do with buffalo and lion. Now, for the first time, Safari Press has reprinted this classic in its original, large-page format with a well-crafted copy of the 1923 dust jacket. Illustrated with extremely artistic drawings by Bell himself as well as photos, Wanderings is one of the best of all the old elephant-hunting titles and is a must-have for all hunters.187 pp, illus.
