African Trails is a copiously illustrated big volume covering the history of hunting in Southern Africa and the author s own impressive series of hunts, including on foot for the big five. In his unique, racy style, Col Allison takes you on safari when the so-called Dark Continent was still being settled, the tribes were at war and the explorer-missionary- hunters were astounded by the sheer volume of game. Generations later, the author takes you on a series of hunts in the modern safari heyday chasing Cape buffalo, lion and antelope; and ending on safari for the big five; a classic. The tell-it-as-it-is tale of the incredible highs and lows of the hunt in a land of mystique and majesty that today still teems with bite-back big-game.
