Phoenix, AZ: Nitro Express Safaris, 2000. First Edition. Hardcover. "If I miss and do not kill, I die. If I succeed, I live to hunt again." The author is a noted game hunter best known for shooting charging animals at close range.
"Ever since I released what has become the most-watched hunting video ever made, "Africa's Black Death", sportsmen around the world have clamored for the real story about how and why this American filmmaker and self-taught professional hunter came to hunt dangerous game the way I do, on equal footing, allowing the animal to charge, testing my nerve and eye against Africa's most feared and deadly beasts. In this book I answer all those questions and more. It is a well known fact that I do not hunt the way other professional hunters do. And I don't want to. My manner and method of hunting dangerous game is unique and I dismiss the notion of dispatching wounded Cape buffalo from a safe distance or from the back of a vehicle, when, with a bit more care, my client and I can walk up and give the bull the choice of how he is to die. Such hunting methods are certainly controversial and not for everyone, but I know that deep down in the heart of every hunter who goes to Africa, that he secretly wants to test his mettle against wounded Cape buffalo and the deadliest of them all, rogue bull hippo on dry land."
