Bwana Game.

Bwana Game. - George Adamson Published 8 years after Born Free. Mr. Adamson wasn't intelligent, educated, or thorough, but he was honest. A failed gold-miner who poisons every predator for miles and shoots any lion crossing his path in search of cattle-raiders doesn't seem much of a wildlife ranger. He may have his reasons, but they're not given. Recommending rhino horn for impotency is also short-sighted idiocy. Still, a few good anecdotes. I wish I'd had the patience to at least browse for African tall tales, but Adamson didn't seem self-aware enough to get the details right.
