    I've been doing a little more leisurely reading lately and its time to order a few new books. I just finished "Heart of an African Hunter" by Peter Flack. What books have you guys and gals enjoyed?

    I've enjoyed my way through 5 or 6 of Peter Capstick's books over the past few months. Robert Rourke's Horn of the Hunter was also very good. I'm currently struggling through Teddy Roosevelt's African Game Trails. I just can't seem to get into it.

    Hemingway's 'Green Hills of Africa' is worth a read if you never have before. It is not as action packed as some other accounts but still well written.

    Some great books by Peter Hathaway Capstick are " Death In the Long Grass, " Death In the Dark Continent ", " Death In a Lonely Land ", and " Last Horizons". Another GREAT book is Hunter by John A. Hunter.

    I have read all Capstick books, amazing reads, and books on Indian Hunting which r world famous namely Jim Corbett "The Man-eaters of Kumaon" and Kenneth Andersons "When the tiger roars" exquiste books depicting the hunters experiences in taking the man-eating tigers in Northen and Southern India. Rouarkes Horn of the Hunter was a great read too.

    As described " A guide to Watching African Mammals".
