'Makepeace, a journalist, recorded the experiences of "Safari Sam" during a long interview. Sam evidently spent much time in the Northern Rhodesian brush country and relates incidents of encounters with rhinoceros, lion, leopard and crocodile, as well as conversation with a veteran elephant hunter. The frontispiece and plates reveal a bright-eyed Sam in various poses." - Kenneth Czech: An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books 1785-1999.
