UNDER THE AFRICAN SUN. Dr. Frank C. Hibben.

UNDER THE AFRICAN SUN.

Long Beach, CA: Safari Press, 1999. First edition. Hardcover. 7 x 10, 305 pgs, b&w and color photos. Hibben, a famous archaeologist, hunter and conservationist, was instrumental in introducing several African species to New Mexico. In thirty-six safaris between 1949 and 1997 he hunted all the game species of Africa, major and minor. This new book contains the best of his earlier book, "Hunting in Africa", as well as seventeen previously unpublished stories. "From his early safaris with Andrew Holmberg until his last hunts in Botswana, there have been very few animals he did not take. Before Chad, Somalia, and Kenya banned hunting, he captured such unusual animals as the eastern bongo, dibatag gazelle, and addax. In addition, he had an impressive collection of ivory, which he donated to the University of New Mexico, and what is generally regarded as the biggest leopard to ever come from Kenya. These were truly impressive trophies." Very Good in Very Good DJ. Item #31081
