IN AFRICA- Hunting Adventures in the Big G-ame Country BY JOHN T. McCUTCHEON. Originally published in 1910. PREFATORY NOTE This collection of African stories has no pretentious purpose. It is merely the record of a most delightful hunt ing trip into those fascinating regions along the Equator, where one may still have thrilling adventures and live in a story-book atmosphere, where the roar of the lion and the crack of the rifle are part of the every-day life, and where in a few months one may store up enough material to keep the memory pleasantly occupied all the rest of a lifetime. The stories are descriptive of a four-and-a-half months trip in the big game country and pretend to no more serious purpose than merely to relate the experiences of a self-confessed amateur under such conditions. JOHN T. McCUTCHEON 1910. Contents include: CHAPTER ONE PAGH The Preparation for Departure. Experiences with Willing Friends and Advisers 1 CHAPTER TWO The First Half of the Voyage.
