African Safaris is aclassic that has been out of print for quite a while and is now, thankfully, back in print. Anderson went from officer in the 18th Hussars, to coffe farmer, to one of the proffesional hunters for the 1924 safari of the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth), to his term as the organizer and first president of the East Africa Professional Hunters Association. Probably of greatest interest is his long lasting friendship with the great Jim Sutherland. This book provides some of the best information on Sutherland, besides his own book. The book covers his early forays into elephant hunting, his wartime experiences, his times hunting with Jim Sutherland, photographic safaris, game besides elephants, and a wonderfull description of what a white hunter should be. This is a wonderfull book that makes the time fly by. It is a wonderfull view into what African safaris were in their heyday.
