Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
A charming memoir, recounting tales from Percy Rowe's days in the wild, unfettered African bush during the 1940-1950's. These tales chronicle Percy's early days growing up in the Andrade Valley of Portuguese East Africa (better known as Mozambique); his elephant hunting adventures with Wally Johnson and other notable characters from that era; and his crocodile hunting escapades in Nyasaland (Malawi) for Peter Gurney. This wonderful collection of stories of an erstwhile era weave an engaging tapestry of bush adventures, recollections of old friends and hunting brothers-in-arms, and colonial history. Percy is a skilled raconteur, and his anecdotes transport one to an earlier age in Africa, now lost in the mists of time and history.
