    Months of the Sun by Ian Nyschens

    Forty Years of Elephant Hunting in the Zambezi Valley. Ian's career as an elephant hunter began in 1947 in Southern Rhodesia when he found a companion-Faanie Joosten-and the pair of them started hunting for ivory for a living. They roamed far and wide, often outside of the law, as far north as southern Tanzania and as far east as the coast of Mozambique. But Ian's stronghold was the thick jess bush of the Zambezi Valley, a place he loved more than any other. There, visibility was so poor that sometimes a hunter could be close enough to touch an elephant with the barrel of his rifle before he could see it. Ian's life was one fantastic and epic adventure after another.
