With a Gun in Good Country.

Agoura, CA: Trophy Room Books, 1995. Limited Edition. Hardcover. This volume "covers Ian Manning's life first as a professional game cropping ranger, then as a professional or white hunter, and later as a wildlife biologist. The good country which he traversed includes Zambia, Congo, and Botswana. Through a dazzling and almost unique series of stories, Manning presents his experiences while hunting alone, and later with paying (and some nonpaying) clients. [The book] is written about that splendid period before the poaching onslaught which almost closed Zambia and continues to the granting of her independence. It then goes on to recount Manning's experiences in Botswana, Congo and briefly in South Africa. The way of life described herein is now almost irrevocably changed and virtually gone from the hunting scene." [publishers statement]. Near Fine in Very Good+ DJ. Tight, bright, and unmarred.
