White Hunters: The Golden Age of African Safaris : East Africa affects our imagination like few other places. White Hunters is the story of seventy years of African adventure, danger, and romance. It re-creates the legendary big-game safaris led by Selous and Bell and the daring ventures of early hunters into unexplored territories, and brings to life such romantic figures as Cape-to-Cairo Grogan, who walked four thousand miles for the love of a woman, and Dinesen's dashing lover, Denys Finch Hatton. Witnesses to the richest wildlife spectacle on earth, these hunters were the first conservationists. Hard-drinking, infatuated with risk, and careless in love, their exploits inspired Hemingway's stories, and movies with Clark Gable and Gregory Peck. Evoking the world of big-game hunting before poaching and politics intervened, The White Hunters is a grand, sweeping adventure story featuring incredible places, animals, and people.
