"There are dozens of B&W illustrations of the wild animals which are represented within this book, which are part of a cinematograph film produced for "Cherry Kearton Films Ltd."."

"Profusely illustrated with black and white photographs (88) the majority taken on the expedition by the author"

"Early photographic study of African wildlife, the culmination of many photographic expeditions there over 25 years. Excellent black and white photographic plates backed by interesting, informative text."

"Kearton hunted with a camera, an early conservationist who noted the disappearance of African wild life at an alarming rate even in his day. First published in 1929 this work covers everything from elephants to ants. "
