Death in the Long Grass: A Big Game Hunter's Adventures in the African Bush by Peter Hathaway Capstick. Photographs by M. Philip Kahl. 'Few men can say they have known Africa as Peter Hathaway Capstick has known it - leading safaris through lion country; tracking man-eater leopards along tangled jungle paths; running for cover as fear-maddened elephants stampede in all directions. And of the few who have known this dangerous way of life, fewer still can recount their adventures with the flair of this former professional; hunter-turned-writer. Based on Capstick's own experiences and the personal accounts of his colleagues, Death in the Long Grass portrays the great killers of the African bust-not only the lion, leopard, and elephant, but the primitive rhino and the crocodile waiting for its unsuspecting prey, the titanic hippo and the Cape buffalo charging like an express train out of control.' The dust jacket has medium wear with creasing and small chips across the top and bottom edges. The book remains tight and bright.
