Fergusson, was murdered in the Sudan in 1927 by one of the Nuer tribesmen he had always befriended.

He led an unusually adventurous life and this book chronicles many of his experiences with Sudan wildlife and people. There are some notable hunting episodes particularly with elephants. Czech writes: ""Near the Bikki River, he bagged elephant and poses in an interesting photograph 'under an arch of ivory.' In Mogalla Province, he hunted lion and elephant, and was literally run over by an elephant, 'hoofed over like a damned football'."" Moderate cover wear. Gilt lettering on spine is intact.
