James Stevenson-Hamilton was the chief architect of South Africa's marvelous Kruger National Park, a hunter, naturalist and natural politician, he managed to navigate all of the obstacles to conserving wildlife and indeed defining what conservation meant. This is a very well-written book describing from his standpoint how it all came about.

This book is the facintaing story of the birth of the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Set at the turn of the last century it charts the epic struggle of how one man changed the hearts of a nation which had hitherto treated wild animals only for sport.
The regular encounters with lions and other wild animals add extra excitement. This book must be read by anyone who has an interest in conservation or african wildlife.
