Description

To South Africa, in 1838, came Delegorgue, a young French naturalist with a passion for information, a keen eye and a ready wit...and a mighty elephant gun. This first volume describes his brief journeying in the Cape Colony, and the early part of his several years of hunting and specimen-collecting in Natal and Zululand. No other tale of hunting and adventure, of Boers and Zulus, of travels in nineteenth century southern Africa, offers the reader such a rich blend of history, biology, Gallic charm - and vigorous entertainment.
