Colonel Stevenson-Hamilton was in charge of the Sabi Game Reserve from its earliest days, and under his care it has become the Kruger National Park, one of the most important game reserves in the world. In this book he tells the graphic story of its development, of the difficulties and prejudices he had to conquer, and of how the Kruger National Park has become a great tourist resort and the pride of South Africa.” - from the dj.
