Rushby, G. G. No More The Tusker.

London: W. H. Allen, 1965. First Edition.

"This fascinating chronicle of elephant hunting is by a man with adventure in his blood. He has been professional ivory hunter, coffee planter, and gold miner. He has encountered man-eating tigers and lions the latter once ate over a thousand people in thirteen years. He was Deputy Game Warden of Tanganyika, and took Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands on a hunting safari. He controlled what he considers to be the two best Game Reserves in the territory - Rungwa Reserve (where he found cave drawings), and Lake Rungwa Controlled Area with its marvellous bird life. It is one of the breeding grounds for flamingos and pelicans, with an abundance of hippo. Mr. Rushby is closely concerned with the technicalities (and sometimes the mystique) of elephant hunting. He knows a great deal about elephant behaviour, the training of hunters, the types of weapon to choose, and the dramatic superstitions surrounding the profession. He tells of the great hunters of the pastsome of whom pre-dated the earliest explorations in the territory, and at least two of whom are reputed to have reached Victoria Falls before Livingston. He is no sentimentalist. He gives the facts, knowledgeably and entertainingly, and his story makes a real contribution to the work of the Game Reserves."

205 pp., 12 b+w plates.
