He has taken more than forty safaris to Asia, North and South America, and Central and Eastern Europe. With its many beautiful color photographs and chapters on hunting on every continent, there is no other book quite like this one. It includes the giant tuskers of the CAR, the elusive Marco Polo sheep of the Pamirs, the impossible markhor from the Himalayas, as well as giant buffalo from Tanzania. Further stories with tiger, brown bear, jaguar, bongo, polar bear, and many of the world’s 'glamour game' in a fabulous display of photographs and text. Michel Droit, Rick Furniss, François Edmond-Blanc, and others contributed stories to this book. François Edmond-Blanc’s stories constitute a precious testimony to a time long since gone, especially since his experiences were acquired during a period of 60 years of hunting and exploring.
