Some brief overview of book

Peter Hathaway Capstick is a name synonymous with excitement, danger, and high adventure. Sportsman, adventurer, raconteur par excellence, Capstick has been recognized as a modern-day master of African hunting literaturea successor to the works of Hemingway and Robert Ruark. Capstick has written post facto about classic hunters of the past and safaris in which he participated as a professional hunter in such books as Death in the Silent Places and Death in the Dark Continent.

Now, he presents an enthralling tale of an entirely new safari, an exciting first-person adventure of his own dangerous and very personal excursion. The result is a definitive work on African hunting, and one of his greatest achievements. In 1985, Capstick went back into the African bush with two top photographers and a crack professional hunter.

It was a venture taken for personal challenge, and for the chance to look anew at what had become of the Africa immortalized in his own earlier works. Peter Capsticks Africa A Return to the Long Grass is the chronicle, in text and pictures, of this safari. It is full of the same edge-of-the-seat narration, witty anecdotes, and wry observations that have made Capsticks earlier books so popular.

The text of the book has been integrated with the photographs of Paul Kimble and Dick van Niekerk into a lavish full-color production that illustrates Capsticks narrative in a way his fans have never seen before.
