Synopsis:

This spectacular new anthology reads like a "Who's Who" in the history of wild sport in Africa. This fascinating book brings together the writings of such legendary authors as Ernest Hemingway, Robert Ruark, Theodore Roosevelt, and Peter Capstick, in addition to some of the finest contemporary outdoor writers. What links all of these great African adventures--both fiction and nonfiction--is their appearance in Sporting Classics at one time or another over the 30-year history of the award-winning magazine. Sporting Classics Africa, edited by Chuck Weschler, will showcase more than 50 illustrations by Bob Kuhn, widely hailed as the world's foremost wild animal artist.
