East africa affects our imagination like few other places: The sight of a charging rhino goes directly to the heart- the limitless landscape of bony highlands, desert, and mountain is of unequalled nobility, writes Dinessen. The adventures recordedMoreEast africa affects our imagination like few other places: The sight of a charging rhino goes directly to the heart- the limitless landscape of bony highlands, desert, and mountain is of unequalled nobility, writes Dinessen.

The adventures recorded here lasted only seventy years but include the legendary big-game safaris led by Selous and Bell- early hunters who by necessity were explorers- the Hill cousins, J. A. Hunter and Ionides- Cape-to-Cairo Grogan, who walked 4,000 miles for the love of a woman- Bror Von Blixen and the romantic Denys Finch. Their exploits inspired Hemingways stories and movies with Clark Gable and Gregory Peck.

Animal lovers, these hunters were the first conservationists, witnesses to the richest wildlife spectacle the earth has ever known.Brian Herne, formerly a professional hunter and one of the few awarded the Shaw and Hunter Trophy, evokes the harmony that existed between hunters and big game before poaching and politics intervened. White Hunters summons adventure, danger, and romance on a grand scale.
