Listing Detail Tabs

An epic 450 pages of adventure in Africa in the years immediately after World War One. Two larger than life central characters, who do not realise they are larger than life, meet and become friends. One owns vast tracts of land in which he is virtually king and the other has ambitions to do the same. They keep the peace, hunt the wild animals for profit and to protect their people, and indulge their large sensual appetites for food, alcohol and tobacco. But while they are following their own ambitions the world around them is changing and they have to respond to it or lose everything they have worked to achieve.
The story is riveting and the characters are interesting and surprisingly believable. The attitudes of the time in which it is set are reflected in their behaviour towards the wildlife and the native populations they encounter, which is to be expected for the sake of authenticity.
The book was a New York Times bestseller when it was first published in the 1960's, and the author was compared to Hemingway and Harold Robbins. It was described as "probably the finest book ever written about White Hunters in the African bush". A fast-paced and thoroughly enjoyable, old-fashioned adventure story by a very talented author
