Description: 342pp, illus. This is the Bible on the African buffalo, by a man who shot more than one thousand of these brutes in his lifetime. Burger was employed by various companies to supply meat for the workers of the railroads before WW II, and has had probably more experience shooting African buffalo than any other person. Hunting buffalo is never easy, for when a buffalo decides he does not like you, he looks at you as though you 'owe him money,' and, sometimes, you pay with your life. Just as Walter Bell's name is associated with the elephant, so is John Burger's name with the buffalo. Filled with fascinating tales of crop destroyers, rogues, vindictive buffaloes, and killers of natives--Africa's horned death!
