tim416, I purchased a paperback version several months ago. I purposely saved it to read while in my deer blind. I thought the book was very well written. The plot was very plausible which made it that much more interesting. My only question for you was the "length of stride" for an elephant. If my memory serves me correctly it is considerably less that what was stated.

When will you be finished with your next book? Will it involve Africa and Hunting?

I just finished your book. Good job with the framing of the novel, plots and cadence. I really enjoyed it.

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. I cannot remember specifically the part you are talking about regarding "stride" I will look back and find it. My next novel takes place on the coast of Maine. Once finished I plan a part 2 of Sibanda.

I read it this week, NOT being critical - there's a few typos, and tactical blunders, but a great read and I can certainly see that happening in many countries throughout the world. Not to give anything away.

Many of you on here bought my first novel, "Sibanda" and provided great reviews. For that, I am extremely grateful.

For those of you interested, my publisher has offered the Kindle version on Amazon in three parts with the first part free.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
