In all of African history, there is no one quite like John Boyes. There have been better hunters, and certainly greater explorers. Having read Company of Adventurers, I read his first book again and enjoyed it far more. There are a few adventures that are unbelievable but he tells a good tale.

In all of African history, there is no one quite like John Boyes. Although he's very readable. I prefer other African hunter's tales more - such as Pondoro- but this book is worth owning.

Resnick Library of African Adventure. By (author) John Boyes, Foreword by Mike Resnick. During a half century, John Boyes created much of Africa's colorful history. If there was a desert to be crossed, a jungle to be tamed, a government to be swindled, a local tribe to be befriended or exploited, John Boyes was there.

HUNTING LAKE by Mike Resnick . In my life, I have written a grand total of three fan letters to writers. One of the recipients, Barry Malzberg, became my closest friend and occasional collaborator. Another, humorist Ross Spencer, also became a good friend. I recently moved THE RESNICK LIBRARY OF AFRICAN ADVENTURE from St. Martin's Press over to Alexander Books, an offshoot of WorldComm Press. The primary reason was to bring Lake back into print.

There's never been anyone quite like John Boyes, the most notorious of East Africa's pioneers. This is his true story, his firsthand accounts of exploits on the Dark Continent during the days of the most daring adventurers. There are lots of things you can say about John Boyes: he was a troublemaker. He was an ivory poacher. He was a hunter. He was a soldier. He was a scalawag. He was a king. He was a criminal. And, above all, he was an adventurer. If there was a fight, John Boyes was there, fists flying. If there was money to be made, legally or illegally, Boyes was always first in line. If there was a desert to be crossed, a jungle to be tamed, a government to be swindled, a local tribe to be befriended or exploited, you could count on John Boyes.

I was a bit surprised when I started reading as it was a hard book to get into. But he really did live a life full of adventure. I also found it interesting that a few later African hunters have written stories of their experiences that are told in this tale. Maybe one or two later hunters- one between the wars in particular- took a story or two from Boyes' book thinking it would not be noticed? You need to concentrate when reading his tale but it is well worth it. He mentions in passing things that to me would be a major adventure! I would have liked to have seen a little information about his hunting rifles but many early day hunters don't talk about their gear either. A book well worth owning!

John Boyes lived several lifetimes worth of adventures. I found this book to be entertaining at times but somewhat tedious as well. If you are a collector of safari and colonial era books you should by all means add this title to your collection. For the more casual reader I would start with Corbett, Patterson, Ruark and Capstick. Their writing is much more consistently engaging in my opinion.

If you enjoy exciting African Safari stories you'll like this.

It's not Capstick, or Ruark by any means, but very enjoyable just the same.
