This is the authors’ account of hunting trips and adventures in Africa, including the prizes they collected and the people they met. Chapters are chronological by year (1994–2008) and catalogue experiences in both South Africa and safari expeditions. Persons involved and animals hunted are listed at the beginning. The first trip was undertaken with Skip Skidmore while Welsh was the director of the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum at BYU. Supplementary content contains a list of Welsh’s African animals taken and their disposition (deposited in the museum or otherwise). Appendixes contain recipes for some of the more exotic dishes the authors tried.
