The Man Whom Women Loved
Hunter Books

The author is Bror Blixen's godson and he writes with much family intimacy about Blix in this fascinating biography. ""Bror Blixen, the original archetype of the Great White Hunter in East Africa was a romantic figure of mythic passions for women and for adventure: if ever a life exceeded the legend, that life belonged to Bror Blixen. His exploits as a hunter were legendary; he was 'the toughest, most durable white hunter ever to snicker at the fanfare of safari or to shoot a charging buffalo between the eyes while debating whether his sundown drink will be gin or whisky.' His magnetic sensuality was such that a friend once warned Blix's safari client that the most dangerous animal he might encounter would be Blix himself: GUARD YOUR WIFE."" Dust jacket is not price-clipped and is Fine. The book itself is Very Fine. $60.00  ID#: 4624
