    Just got this copy of Selous’s book! I’ve read most of Capstick and Ruark, looking for suggestions for other titles and authors

    'Hunter' by J.A. Hunter is a must read.

    There was a big thread on this a few months back, had a lot of good books. I read the courteney series as well as others after those suggestions. Worthwhile looking it up.

    Some great books; Maneaters & Marauders by Taylor, Jim Corbetts books are great,White Hunters by Brian Herne, I have dozens that I keep in my safari room and every few years I read them again and again. Ruark and Capstick books are a must. I left Africa several years ago and live in Australia where I write many articles on wild life, guiding and hunting.
    Something I would like to know is - if anyone has read Into The Thorns by Wayne Grant - it looks good but no comments about the book which to me looks good.
