About this book

When in 1949, John Blower arrived to take up the post of Assistant Conservator of Forests in Tanganyika he received a terse note from his chief saying "take over the Southern Province". He was not to meet him for another twelve months. For the next twenty years John Bower served as forester, game ranger, warden and briefly in the Kenya Police during the Mau Mau emergency. He was responsible for vast areas of the country, at times exceeding 25 000 square miles. His matter-of-fact accounts of long foot safaris are unforgettable as are the descriptions of the incredible variety of wild life which roamed unhindered across the continent. Throughout, his respect and obvious liking for the African people is evident, qualities which are reciprocated by the many tribesmen and colleagues with whom he was associated. A skilled photographer, John Blower accompanies his narrative with many evocative pictures of a way of life now almost gone forever.
