By Giorgio Grasselli
Giorgio Grasselli is a well-known professional hunter. But, as the author emphasises, this is not purely a hunting book. It is also the story of his life in Africa, written with honesty, humour and often with irony. The threads that bind his story, include his love of nature, its big wild animals in particular, his interest in the indigenous people among whom he has lived and the close bond of affection he feels towards the old white people of Africa. The author is a connoisseur of Africa (he hates the word expert, so often used and abused of these days) and some of these “expert” problems emerge forcibly from the pages of this book. Some of the countries he lived and hunted in were Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Zambia, CAR and Sudan.
