    A review...
    On one of several trips to Africa Mr. Berry Brooks a renowned big game hunter from Memphis, TN. is accompanied by his wife Virginia (Author) and their young teenage daughter also named Virginia. This book is a narrative of their travels fom Memphis to Africa and their stops on the way. It also includes comments of their hunting and daily camp life while on Safari. All three take different game on their lengthly quest to the dark continent. Interesting reading taken from a time when African Safaris lacked many modern conveniences.
