Richard Harland's extraordinary story is most unusual in that he began his big game hunting at a very young age, shooting his first buffalo at 14 years old accompanied only by a tracker. He became an elephant hunter a year later under the direction of Paul Grobler. When he joined the Rhodesian Game Department he was posted to Gonarezhou in the south eastern lowveld to control elephant and buffalo in the tsetse fly corridors. Years of incredible hunting followed. Experience the extreme heat and fatigue while he single-handedly hunts down bull elephants, the tensions and intuitions when following wounded dangerous game, and the amazing comradeship he shares with his lifelong friend and tracker, Tsuro Sibanda. 250 pages with black & white photographs
