Here is a bit more about the book On the Tracks of the Big Five in Angola
Jorge Alves de Lima's third book, On the Tracks of the Big Five in Angola, takes readers on a grand journey filled with adventure, sport and romance during the second half of the twentieth century. The renowned hunter and author picks up where his previous books left off, telling the story of his years in Angola running the safari company, Kirongozi Angola, his return to Brazil where he hunted the jaguar, and of his subsequent days at his expansive ranch, where he lives with his beloved big cats.
For over forty years, Alves de Lima travelled through some of the world's harshest and most mysterious landscapes, hunting everything from elephants and rhinos to lions and jaguars. One of the most respected professional hunters of the modern era, Alves de Lima also was an explorer and consummate busiï½ness man who introduced people from around the globe to the sport of big game hunting.
In this riveting collection of hunting stories, the author describes in great detail his many trips through the heart of Africa and Brazil in pursuit of the most beautiful and dangerous animals on the planet. Faced with the perils of wildlife in addition to local conflicts and international politics, life on the hunt was always a challenge - Alves de Lima was ever the man to rise to the occasion.
Accompanied by hundreds of stunning photographs as well as first-hand accounts of his fellow hunters, including such luminaries as Bill Negley, Hugo Seia, Tony Sanchez-Arino, Oscar Anibal Picarra de Castro Cardoso, Alberto de Castilho, Rubens Ribeiro Marx Junior, and Richard Mason, this book takes the reader on a safari of their own, resplendent with all of the trials and the glory of hunting big game. It is a journey of intrigue and of a life well lived and full of daring: the life of a true adventurer.
On the Tracks of the Big Five in Angola was published independently and printed in a limited edition of 1,000 copies, which are numbered and signed by the author.
