"The twenty-sixth president of the UnitedStates was also a world-renowned hunter, conservationist, soldier, and sch olar. In 1908 he took a long safari holiday in East Africa with his son Kermit. His account of this adventure is as remarkably fresh today as it was when these adventures on the veldt were first published. Roosevelt describesthe excitement of the chase, the people he met (including such famous hunt ers as Cunninghame and Selous), and flora and fauna he collected in the name of science. Long out of print, this classic is one of the preemiinent examples of Africana, and belongs on every collector's shelf." - from the dustjacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 35.00
