After retiring as a Professional Hunter at the end of 2013 I've been focusing on writing and my books can be seen on my website at www.kevindthomas.com Shadows in an African Twilight Shadows in an African Twilight is a collection of fascinating stories about a life of adventure spread across nearly four decades in Africa that eventually culminates in Iraq. Some stories include aberrant behaviour of man-eating lions and killer crocodiles, stories of courageous Rhodesian game rangers who while fighting to preserve the wildlife of a beautiful country were also fighting a war. The author also relates some of his experiences as a pseudo counter-terrorist operator in the elite Selous Scouts during the Rhodesian Bush War, and covers many of his experiences as a professional hunter in the exciting world of African Safari. Having also served in the previous South African era ‘black homeland’ of Ciskei he offers an often-humorous insight into life during the wayward period. The book ends with a look into what it is like to work in war-torn Iraq in the specialised field of Security Escort Teams. Shadows in an African Twilight can be ordered directly from my website at www.KevinThomas.com. Front cover Back cover About Kevin Thomas was born in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in 1950. When he was 17 he joined the Rhodesian Department of National Parks and Wildlife Management. Following six years' service and with the escalation of The Rhodesian Bush War, he left the game department and became a charter member of the Selous Scouts. After three years as an operational combat non-commissioned officer, he transferred to the unit's training wing as a counterinsurgency instructor. Upon leaving the Rhodesian Army he turned to full time professional hunting and safari guiding across most of southern Africa. At the end of 2013 he retired from the safari industry and he and his wife Brenda relocated to the UK. They currently live on a narrowboat where Kevin continues his writing, photography and painting.
