Tony Sanchez-Ariño is quite likely the world’s most prominent living elephant hunter, and in this book he delves into the exploits and adventures of the famous elephant hunters of yesteryear: Walter Bell, John Hunter, Mickey Norton, Bill Buckley, Robert Foran, James Sutherland, and so on. He also discusses those obscure elephant hunters who shot as many if not more tuskers but who are not as well known, simply because they never wrote books on their adventures.

These intrepid hunters include Aurelio Rossi, Otto Krohnert, Billy Pickering, and Theodore Lefebvre and Etienne Canonne (Frenchmen who hunted in West Africa). The late Harry Manners, also a very famous hunter himself, wrote a chapter on Tony Sanchez’s elephant-hunting escapades—the last piece Manners ever wrote and something that has never before been published.
