About this title:

Synopsis: Elephant hunting literature is rich and varied and has brought forth some of the most memorable writings on Africa ever. However, very little is ever written on modern elephant hunting. And strange as it may seem, many of the largest elephants shot in the history of Africa have actually been shot in the last fifty years. And while shooting a hundred pounder is now a very rare occurrence, it may fairly be said that the average weight of ivory shot on safari has risen and risen over the last fifteen years, bringing with it a period that might well be called the renaissance of elephant hunting. Craig Boddington has been fortunate enough to have shot elephants in some of Africa s modern hot spots, including Mozambique, southern Tanzania, Botswana, and Namibia. Here is a book on how elephants are hunted today and where the best places are to find them. Included are stories about hunts that any one of us could experience"

About the Author: Craig Boddington is a veteran of over seventy African Safaris and an author of over international repute. He resides in California's Central Coast with his wife when not on safari.
